Elewana Collection and it’s charitable arm Land & Life Foundation has once again joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.
#GivingTuesday is held annually after the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
This year Giving Tuesday fell on TUESDAY NOVEMBER 27th and through a number of initiatives the team was organising a book and toys drive in addition to wearing GREEN to the office from head to toe - socks, hats, shirts.... as green as we could be!!!
These funds will be used to fund the Wildlife Warrior retreat, which this year is happening in the Wildlife Clubs of Kenya campus in Nairobi in December and will bring together 37 young conservationists from all over Kenya for a week of conservation education, exciting visits and fun activities.
Last year the contributions raised approximately Ksh 63,000, which enabled us to construct a brand new Boy's Toilet Block at Kachiuru Primary School. This year we want to double our efforts and hope to raise even more for a good cause.
