"2 Days of work" Challenge
Have you been looking for a “Social Justice in
Action” initiative for your school community this Christmas season? As the year ends it can be a very busy time
in the school calendar, but equally – it is an important time to reach out and
make a difference for those in need. The
perfect initiative is one that is impactful and life changing while being easy
TTN would like to
invite you to help change lives in Timor this Christmas and to join thousands
of students who will be taking part in '2 days of work' by buying hand
crafted greeting card packs.
The idea is simple - every 8-pack of greeting
cards sold for $25 provides 2 days of work in East Timor. Every school is given a unique code which is
used on “checkout” from this secure website – where your families place their orders
directly. Your school’s orders will be
delivered to your school on your nominated date.
Why not set your
school a challenge? Get your students and classes together and ask them how
many days of work your school would like to aim for? TTN can keep track of your
school's aim and actual and give a weekly update. At the end of the campaign,
we will provide you with a certificate of thanks for days of work you have made
means “friend” in the Timorese language. The Kolega cards program has been
running now for 10 years, providing life changing work for women in the remote
mountains of East Timor. Over this time, the quality of the cards has become
reliably high. Each card includes a little information sheet, that describes
the card’s artwork in the context of a story of Timor. As each of these cards
passes through our hands – we become part of this story.
TO REGISTER FOR THE CHALLENGE:
please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you the “2 days of work” pack which includes your
unique school code, flyer, template letter home to families and clickable links
to the website to start ordering today.
Thank you for your involvement in this great initiative – though the
power of our numbers we can make an incredible difference and change lives for
our friends in some of the poorest parts of Timor.
