“A donation from you on Tuesday, November 30 could be matched up to 100% as the more we raise the bigger will be our share of a special Giving Tuesday fund from GlobalGiving. This means €50 donated today could be worth up to €100.

Describing the difference a donation of €50 euro could make, Maria said:

“€50 supports PPE for four health workers in Kenya.” Maria said Brighter Communities Worldwide have a big target for this Tuesday.

“On Tuesday we are aiming to raise €50,000 in 24 hours for the survival of families in Kenya. With your help we can do this!”
