The Giving Tuesday (#GivingTuesday) is a global movement of people and organisations to create an international day of giving at the beginning of the Christmas season.
Today Novemeber 29 2016, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together to celebrate and encourage giving.
And so, in order to encourage more people to give through our #GIVEITUP4IDPS challenge, we plugged the challenge into the #GivingTuesday movement and launched a tweet chat, from 11am to 12noon, to amplify Sesor’s work with Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs); amplify the ongoing #GIVEITUP4IDPS campaign
and seek more donations & more partnerships.
The tweet chat featured Sesor’s Executive Director, Ier Jonathan-Ichaver. She started social work fundraising for charity missions while still an Economics student at the London School of Economics and continued to fundraise for good causes during stints in Christian ministry, banking and advertising. She switched to the NGO sector and worked with the Centre for Values in Leadership, Nigeria before joining …UNICEF as their private sector fundraising lead in the Nigeria office. She moved to their Geneva HQ to provide corporate fundraising support to over 80 UNICEF country offices and resigned in 2013 to come back home and work with her people through Sesor. Ier also has a Masters in Political Management from the George Washington University and is passionate about Nigerians working together to fix Nigeria.
It also featured our moderator, Glowreeyah Braimah, the Gospel & Worship Ambassador par excellence who penned and voiced the gospel hit, ‘Miracle Worker’. In her previous corporate/professional capacity,Glowreeyah Braimah was a Programme Manager for UBA Foundation and also Head of Legal & Regulatory for Mobitel Limited. Her passion for people and her experience in Corporate Social Responsibility and uStakeholder Management is pivotal to this tweet-chat with Sesor. Glowreeyah is also the Founder of The Starbeam Youth Foundation and we were honoured to have her moderating our live tweet chat.
