Empower family farmers by joining us on #GivingTuesday!
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that is celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday. By participating in #GivingTuesday on November 29, 2016 you become part of a worldwide movement of generosity and empowerment.
This #GivingTuesday, we’ve set a goal to empower 100 farmers, and we need your help to raise $5,000 to reach this goal. More than ever, farmers in developing countries need our support. These farmer leaders will learn how to grow more and better food for their families, while teaching their farming neighbors to do the same. For farmers in developing countries like Burkina Faso and Haiti, this is the start of fixing a broken food system. Evidence shows that we must transition to a more sustainable, productive, ecological farming and food system, and this work must be led from the ground up.
Farmers urgently need your support and there are three ways that you can help:
- Make a donation to Groundswell International today and it will count towards our $5,000 goal. It is amazing what your support can do to help farming leaders: $50 helps one farmer; $125 helps a whole farming family; $275 turns land the size of half a soccer field from dust to farm; and $1,000 provides an entire village with knowledge and resources to build a long-lasting local food system for future generations.

- Save your support for the big day. Visit our special #GivingTuesday Campaign on Razoo, an online giving platform, and donate on November 29th. Razoo is helping us do more for famers by waiving their processing fees on #GivingTuesday. We are happy to send you a reminder, so let us know the best way to contact you by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
