Today is #GivingTuesdayNow - now more than ever we are called to make a difference.
First of all CNI Network want to thank and honour all those who give of themselves - as a former Prime Minister said about CNI Network, "people standing up and taking an active role in building the type of community they want to live in". If you invest yourself to others / communities that includes you! #VolunteersAreAmazing
Secondly we want to thank and honour all those who support those making a difference in any way - those who support financially, those who pray, businesses who have a Corporate Social Responsibility arm and for family members of our local projects those who haven't minded Saturday and Sunday mornings lost to sleep after a 4am finish!
Thirdly we want to thank and honour those who are doing more or doing different in this difficult time. Several of our local projects have stepped up to do different and many are looking afresh at how they best support local communities once lockdown is over. Innovation around the unknown is a scary place to be sometimes but our communities are worth it!
Finally CNI Network want to encourage you on this #GivingTuesday to consider giving - if everyone gave a few £ (or $ or €) especially to smaller charities it could well be a lifeline. Please do consider CNI Network and our local projects - but giving to any smaller local charity could well ensure they have a future as normal income is lost.
