Since its creation in 2012, GivingTuesday has been known as a global generosity movement by unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. Over 34 million people participated in GivingTuesday in the United States last year and gave 2.47 billion dollars in 24 hours. GivingTuesday has since grown into a worldwide movement which nows spans over 75 countries and hundreds of cities.
Life360 Community Services(LCS) is dedicated to contributing this year to the cause of GivingTuesday. This year, all donations raised by LCS during GivingTuesday will go towards Life360 preschools. Our goal this year is to raise $30,000. All the money raised during this time will go towards our Life360 preschools to provide them with trained staff, quality facilities, and all the educational resources needed to ensure high quality, affordable pre-K education.
Affordable early childcare fosters positive relationships for children, their families, and the communities they live in. Research shows that early childhood education directly impacts a child’s health and well-being by affecting:
- Social and emotional well-being
- Cognitive and developmental outcomes
- Physical status, as well as future health
Life360 Community Services works to establish resources and connections in rural communities to meet the specific needs of that population and community. The need for safe, quality, and affordable childcare and early childhood education is one of the first needs brought to light in a community. With your help, we can provide opportunities for children in this community to help them succeed as adults.
