We raised more than $10,000 for iEARN-USA's global education programs!

On Tuesday, November 28th, iEARN-USA held a full-day celebration for #GivingTuesday! 

With the generous support of the community, and a match from Facebook and The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, we successfully raised more than $10,000 to forward global education programs and opportunities for meaningful cross-cultural connections for K-12 youth and educators in the U.S. and internationally.


Throughout the day we held Passport to iEARN - 12-hrs of Live-streaming Webinars on Facebook Live introducing iEARN-USA's programs and international community. 

On Facebook, there was incredible engagement from the community: 2,070 post engagements, 3,752 video views, 21 new followers, and 13 new 5 star reviews. 

iEARN-USA staff, educators, project facilitators, NSLI-Y and YES program alumni, and supporters of iEARN joined in throughout the day. We had a great time sharing about all of iEARN’s programs, and engaging in a discussion about global education.
