Giving Tuesday is a holiday for us to invest our resources into the causes and people we deeply care about. We at the Global Lives Project believe that investing in global empathy during these difficult times is one of the utmost importance in building the world we want to see in the future.
That’s why this fall, we’ve launched our Giving Tuesday fundraiser – “Global Lives Through Our Eyes” – a campaign that intends to share personal experiences from members of the Global Lives community who have felt positively impacted and moved by our work. We hope it will inspire you as well.
We at the Global Lives Project are committed to creating an accessible, inclusive platform to teach and instill global empathy worldwide. This Giving Tuesday, we want you to join us and consider donating to allow this project to thrive.
Help us bring lessons of global empathy to audiences worldwide by contributing today!
Here are some of the many ways your donation will help out our team:
- We are teaching students about the power of global empathy
In our Giving Tuesday: Global Lives Through Our Eyes video, our student interns from University of California, Berkeley, shared perspectives on their experiences with the Global Lives Project. Watch to learn more about the impact this project has directly had on our student interns and join us to see Global Lives through your eyes.
- Our Museum Exhibits are currently quarantined
Earlier this year, Global Lives opened a new exhibit at the Global Museum in San Francisco State University. Unfortunately, we had to close it down soon after due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During these difficult times, we need your help to expand the reach of our online video collection while our exhibits are quarantined in museums
Your donation will help us bring our videos to millions of people online, as well as share an enriching cross-cultural curriculum to folks worldwide. Contribute to your global community today and help us bring global empathy – a valuable tool that we believe can instill hope during these challenging circumstances.
- Add our curriculum to your holiday gift list!
If you are still looking for holiday gifts, consider supporting us by ordering a spiral-bound version of Unheard Stories from Amazon for $24.99. Unheard Stories is a 60-page, empathy-based, curriculum aligned to Common Core Standards, developed in partnership with the Stanford Graduate School of Education.
