Make the extraordinary possible this
So here’s a chance to take something positive from the year. This Giving Tuesday (December 1st), grab the opportunity to create change that’s anything BUT normal for communities around the world.
Your generosity will support families who are facing extraordinary challenges caused by climate change as well as the impact of coronavirus. Join the global generosity movement – feel good, do good, and create some good news.
With your support, and close collaboration with our partners and government bodies around the world, we can create jobs, improve incomes and revitalise businesses. Together, we can use ingenuity to provide access to clean energy, improve health and sanitation and protect communities from disasters.
You can help us work with communities, municipalities and utility companies to deliver sustainable sanitation, water and waste management services to city slums. Your generosity could kick-start an ambitious plan to bring basic handwashing and sanitation services to over 3 million more people in towns and cities across the world.
A Giving Tuesday gift from you could enable smallholder farmers to achieve a decent standard of living, while building natural resources. Your donation could drive the reintroduction of traditional, hardy seed varieties and climate-adapted farming methods to parts of Africa where other crops often fail due to climate change.
Play a part in our work linking communities, energy providers and decision makers to put clean energy solutions to work for the people who need them most. With your help, non-recyclable plastics that currently litter waterways in Bangladesh, could be transformed into oil for powering electricity generators, creating jobs and cleaning up the environment.
With big ideas and bold actions, together we can build a world that’s better for everyone. Where people can unleash their potential and make the extraordinary possible.
You can help make this happen with a gift to Practical Action this Giving Tuesday.
