On November 27, 2018, we celebrated #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving, kindness, and volunteerism. A big thank you to everyone who gave, fundraised with us, and joined us for the Youth Action on SDGs webinars.

Together we raised more than $8,000, from 72 donors. All of the funds raised will go towards sustaining and growing iEARN’s programming for U.S. and international youth and educators to engage in meaningful cross-cultural experiences.
