Back before the social media days — and yes, there were days before social media! — there used to be a lot of talk about networking. In my (few) months of a misguided attempt to be a Real Estate Agent in the ’80s, it was alllll about networking.
Now days, I think we just assume everyone is connected all the time. And we are, in some ways… But are we really sharing the important stuff or just enjoying cat memes? (I love a good cat meme!)
With the Season of Giving upon us, I’d like to ask you a favor.
Would you “network” the old-fashioned way for us for just a few minutes? Could you:
- Forward one of our emails to friends and family with a “Hey, I support this great work in Uganda and think you’d be interested?”
- Like, Comment, and Share some of our social media posts, especially around Giving Tuesday next week? (buttons below)
- Head to our Bonfire shop and grab a shirt or bag — then tell a few people about us when you wear it?
Word of mouth is THE most valuable tool in growing our work in the Namuwongo slum. There’s a lot of noise in the world these days, and your recommendation helps us cut through that.
We are so thankful for your support and encouragement! You’ve made 2022 such an incredible and impactful year for our girls at Touch the Slum. We can’t do it without YOU!
PS Cecilia is getting ready to move out on her own after over a year in our residential program. She’s in charge of our daycare and is going to continue that work plus keep her own small business. We’ve got a project up on DonorSee to bless her with an exit package (mattress, sheets, some household food, and food). If you can contribute $20 that would help her so much! Click the button!
