You can participate in #Giving Tuesday on December 2 and directly help the needs of the Episcopal Church in Navajoland.

This year marks the first time The Episcopal Church will participate in #Giving Tuesday, an international movement. Through the efforts of the Episcopal Church Development Office, donations can be made to the building of hogans in Navajoland.

Donations can be made here

#Giving Tuesday is “a global day dedicated to giving back,” according to the website

“#Giving Tuesday is defined as a charity-centered alternative to Black Friday, only four days prior,” explained Elizabeth Lowell, Director of Development.

The Navajoland Area Mission is 26,000 square miles, spreading over Arizona, New Mexico and Utah.  Hogans, a traditional Navajoland dwelling, cost $40,000 to build and are used for traditional ceremonies as well as educational purposes.

Donations for hogans will be accepted through June 2015.

For more information contact Lowell.
