  • Home for the Holidays: Julia, Social Media Intern

    [img]/images/user/1842_13246731416294709766.jpg[/img] In my family, the holiday season is a time of giving back and celebrating Romanian traditions. This year, we started a chapter of Stuffed Animals for Emergencies to collect used stuffed animals, toys, clothes, and books for foster children so that they could be a little more comfortable during the holiday season.This project has spread the spirit of giving throughout my community and has inspired many children to give what they no longer need, embracing the true meaning of the holidays. As a family who strongly believes in the value of education, we're also looking for Givology students and projects to support this year and spreading awareness. During the holiday season, we enjoy spending time with friends and family and exchanging presents. The first special day to come is December 6th, St. Nicholas Day. The night before, mylittle brother and sister lay out their shoes by the door and hope to find them filled with treats fro...
  • Some reflections on education in India

    [img]/images/user/1842_10209905396802932900.jpg[/img] [i] [/i] [i]Our intern Rabani reports on her visit to India [/i] This summer, I visited a rundown, poverty-ravaged school in a small, virtually unknown town in India. I remember that day with a crystal-like clarity. It was about 112° Fahrenheit and all the kids were clustered together outside on the mud floor, batting away the incessant flies, wiping away the rapidly forming sweat, and probably wishing fervently for just one ceiling fan. They had tattered uniforms and pencil snubs, and the blackboards had one piece of chalk each. I thought about my own high school and its air-conditioned classrooms, the desks and chairs and whiteboards we all sometimes take for granted, and felt sick. The teachers of the school sat me down under the one fan in the school and gave me a cool drink. They had nothing, but their Indian hospitality was still intact. They told me about the school: they received 2 rupees per child from the government (a...
  • Home for the Holidays: NKTP Hai Phong - Givology Vietnam Chapter

    [img]/images/user/1842_4995529066826554795.jpg[/img] November 20th, known as Vietnamese Teachers' Day, is a special day for students to show their appreciation of their teachers. And this year, to help students and teachers celebrate this special occasion, we started a flower-selling project, which proved to be a huge success. This project aimed to raise money for the upcoming projects of Givology NKTP Hai Phong- Givology Vietnam. Every member of our group was very thrilled to help carry out this meaningful project. Even though there are a lot of flower boutiques in Hai Phong, we still have a few tricks up our sleeves that made us competitive. We had about 20 different styles of flower baskets and bouquets at quite reasonable prices ranging from 100.000 VND to 350.000 VND. What's more, all shipments were free. Students of Tran Phu High School for the gifted and other schools in the city could start ordering flowers from November 7 th to November 19 th. All customers were ver...
  • Global Giving Traditions

    Giving Tuesday, celebrated internationally on December 2nd, is a day dedicated to giving back to causes we believe in and celebrating generosity. To honor the day, Givology's #GivBack campaign donates $1 to a student or project for every picture of the contents of your backpack or purse posted on [url=https://twitter.com/givology]Twitter[/url], [url=https://www.facebook.com/Givology]Facebook[/url], or [url=http://instagram.com/givology]Instagram[/url] and tagged #GivBack. December 2nd is the last day to participate and help us reach our goal of 100 submissions. In the spirit of giving back, we're learning about the unique ways that people give throughout the world and the ways that we can incorporate giving in our own holiday traditions.
