The 3 Day Countdown to our Where Do You Give? Curriculum!

Jul 30, 2012 by miaj  | 

The countdown has begun!

After months of hard work and dedication from our staff, partners and sponsors, Where Do You Give? is proud to announce (drummroll please…)

Our Tzedakah Curriculum will be available for free download, this Wednesday, August 1!

We’re hugely excited to share this with all of you, and welcome educators and their communities across the country into the national tzedakah conversation. So excited, in fact, that we just couldn’t keep it to ourselves. Over the next two days, we’ll be sharing with you some of our favorite snippets from the curriculum, and we invite YOU to join the conversation and let us know what you think!

The first is a video from our Get Inspired archive called “100 Peopleā€. This inspiring video steps back before the question of “where,” and challenges us to ask: Why do we give tzedakah? Or, more aptly,  why is there a need to give? Check it out:

100 People

After I first watched this video, I was struck by the simplicity of the message: We are not equal around the world. While some of us have the resources they need to live healthy and safe lives, many more do not.

What do you think of the idea of being one in 100? Did you find it inspiring? Disheartening? What surprised you, and what moved you to want to act? Let us know in the comments below!
