Join St Catherine's on this global day of generosity to give back to our community. Support our student led initiatives. Make a difference! Be the reason someone smiles every day!
|18 Nov 2020|
As Giving Tuesday on 1st December approaches it makes us think about how we can give back in these very uncertain times. St Catherine's invites you to join us on this global day of generosity and be inspired to give back from your heart with community in mind.
GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a day that encourages people to do good and this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give back and celebrate generosity. This year Giving Tuesday will take place on December 1, 2020.
Here are some ways to give back:
Know your neighbour! Be kind and do an act of kindness, help your neighbours in need, say thank you, share a skill with a colleague!
Our favourite way to give back is through our student initiatives,: with our CAS students and their projects; our senior Senate; and all the charities the Lower School and Upper School students support with all their efforts. Here are just a few where you can make a difference:
HowDoYouThankAHero support the fight against COVID-19, in our local hospitals with their everyday fight to keep us all safe
Stray Animals Athens give a stray a "Forever Home" and make an animal feel loved today
Replant Europe #StCatsCombat sign the petition against deforestation. This project is close to our heart as we understand the importance even more now that we have become a 'Forest School' with our Lower School pupils and the importance of outside learning
Join the e-mentoring programme to give back to alumni and senior students. This such an important community project where the philosophy is ' when you move up you hold out a helping hand to those coming up', This is where our 'circle of community' starts, Giving Back! Support our mentoring programme and make a difference today!
Support businesses from our community during these uncertain times on the Business Directory or add your business and be supported!
DESMOS is a charity that suports so many other charities. We would like to give back to them by sharing their important message with our network. DESMOS supports more that 800 social organisations worldwide. Join their GivingTuesday initiative and give back!
