BCG is the acronym for Building a Global Community; an organization that began in January of 2007. It was developed by two highly devoted women, Angela DeCraene and Jennifer Fleming in order to assist children, families and their surrounding communities worldwide by providing them with spiritual, educational and health care needs. The women offered this through a holistic approach.
BCG was not founded on a whim. No, the women each had seven years of prior humanitarian work that they had done globally. Now their organization is primarily established in South Africa, Swaziland and Lesotho; some of the most impoverished and disease-ridden geographical locales in our world. Their goal is to provide assistance to those individuals that have been severely burdened by poverty, sickness, lack of education and zero opportunity to get themselves situated otherwise.
The women’s aim is to promote advancement amongst the people living in these communities; display how they, too, can reach their full potential, thrive and then help to change the lives of their neighbors. They want to help the people find life-sustaining goals through enriching their spiritual, educational and healthcare needs.
Today is Giving Tuesday. Today is a day that you can help the women associated with this organization to reach their goals of helping people across the globe to have a better life. Even if you are unable to travel these long distances, there are many ways to ‘give well’ to help others achieve their goals!
Depending on the gift you would like to offer today, will depend on goal you would like to see the women achieve. Will it be to support their educational endeavors so that everyone in the world has a proper education or will it be to feed, clothe or provide much-needed medical assistance to the most marginalized individuals in the world today? You alone can decide!
But on this day of giving, don’t wait for another person to give, take your time, reflect on your blessings and then find it in your heart to extend the same to another person in need. Being socially responsible is one of the best gifts that you can possibly give to yourself – this time of year or any time during the year!
So, today, on Giving Tuesday, don’t forget to join the tribes of other supporters of BCG and commit yourself to supporting another human being in need. You, too, can be a part of Building a Global Community. Are you ready to succeed?
