#BuildBackBetter Holiday 2019

Our goal this holiday season is to raise $18,000, to bring life-giving hope to these families.

·      To house the homeless:  We’ll take action to start rebuilding this devastated community, by building new homes for the next families in need ($6000 each): $12,000

·      To feed the hungry: We’ll provide much-needed nutrition and holiday joy for 100 families by providing Christmas baskets, delivered by EAB scholarship students on Christmas Eve ($30 each): $3000

·      To educate the next generation: Three ambitious Dominican students have started attending college or trade school this fall, with partial funding, and we need matching funds ($1000/ea) to get them through the year: $3000.




Give a Basket Now

What’s a holiday celebration without children… food.. and joy?

This Giving Tuesday, Education Across Borders needs you to help us provide Christmas baskets for the 100 neediest families in our partner communities.

These families are working hard, but sometimes that isn’t enough. They need food, and a reason to celebrate.

$30 will provide a struggling family with a decent Christmas dinner, plus plenty of leftovers for these tough times. Rice, beans, ham, bread, sweet potatoes, vegetables, pineapples and other delicious tropical fruits, and much more.

The Christmas Basket provides good nutrition for the body, and a needed lift to the soul. It lets these families know they are seen, and cared for, and that gives them the strength to keep going.

The baskets are planned and prepared by EAB’s Dominican scholarship students, who dedicate hours of their free time to pack them with care, and organize a gifting ceremony in the community that honors, celebrates, and uplifts these families, without making them feel like they’re simply getting a handout.

Because it’s not a handout. This is about walking with each other, sharing love and food generously with your neighbor today, knowing that you might need it tomorrow.

It’s about more than hunger… it’s about humanity.

This Giving Tuesday, be part of these families’ Christmas joy. Give a basket today.  You’ll be feeding body and soul.
