#GivingTuesday - 2018

BECOME A CITIZEN AMBASSADOR - Join us in making Giving Tuesday 2018 a success!

Join the race: This GivingTuesday, November 27, 2018, starting at 8:00am EST (5:00am PST) join our race on FACEBOOK! Create your own FACEBOOK fundraising campaign on behalf of The 1947 Partition Archive. It is very easy to do, and will go a long ways in preserving history. Facebook will be matching the first $7million it receives in donations, so your donation could be doubled!

Why: This year, we at The 1947 Partition Archive are joining hands with you, our community members, to raise funds for the final 2,500 oral histories needed to reach our goal of recording at least 10,000 individual accounts through the end of 2019. More than 70 years have passed since Partition and those who remember make up an aging population, with adults at that time being well over 90 today. Will you join us on this special day to ensure that their stories are told in 2019 and their memories forever preserved? Sign up below to become a Citizen Ambassador.

Join us in the Race Against Time!
