I am so grateful for our donors and volunteers for Nicolás Fund for Education! I am writing in hopes that you will agree to be a social media ambassador for NFE on Giving Tuesday, December 1st!
You choose when you post as long as you post on December 1st! Post about WHY you support NFE in ALL forms of social media you use: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.
Encourage people to donate directly to NFE on our website, or you may choose to create a personal Facebook fundraiser that benefits Nicolás Fund for Education. If you do run a personal fundraiser on Facebook, please reach out to thank these donors yourself. We are not given their names and addresses by Facebook. You can use your own trip photos and stories to explain why you support NFE, or you may use one of these three images (click the link to see and download the images).
If you are at a loss for what to say, here is a suggestion:
“Nicolás Fund for Education provides secondary education for indigenous Mayans in the mountains of Guatemala. In this region, less than 20% of children attend school beyond 6th grade. Free education stops after 6th grade and most families in this region cannot afford to pay tuition for students to continue their education. Nicolás Fund for Education donors give the gift of education to these students, providing excellence in education for these young men and women that will help them become the future leaders in Guatemala. Education is the #1 way to combat poverty.”
Please include the two hashtags #GivingTuesday and #NFE in your posts so we can find them. You can also @mention us, so your posts show up on our timeline. Facebook @nicolasfund.org, Twitter @NicolasFundEd, Instagram @nicolasfundforeducation.
Paste this link in your post to send folks to the NFE GivingTuesday Donation page.
Thank you for considering this request, and for your faithful support of our Nicolás Christian School students!
