Online fundraising for Giving Tuesday 2013 - LIFT USA


Our complete compiled list of reasons to support the students of LIFT on this #GivingTuesday:

* The LIFT Students are taught that their scholarship is a blessing and that they need to share this blessing with others in their life.

* #GivingTuesday gives us all the opportunity to share the blessings that we have in our lives.

* Service work helping at an HIV home for kids, medical camps and a shelter for abused women and village elders.

* Teaches respect for all faith traditions…founded by Catholic priests, LIFT supports children of all faith communities, including Hindu & Muslim;

* Educating girls lifts families out of poverty. 2/3 of LIFT’s 90 students are girls.

* Eliminating child labor is one way LIFT transforms communities. By providing family stipends, LIFT helps support student families so the children can go to school instead of working.

* A child’s acceptance into LIFT raises the family’s status in their community.

* Each LIFT scholarship provides room, board & high quality education.

* Each educated student positively impacts the lives of more than four people beyond LIFT…

* Alums launched LIFT 2.0 in January to formalize their long-term commitment to LIFT and the students that follow them.
