Recognized on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving in the United States, Giving Tuesday is a movement to create an international day of charitable giving at the beginning of the holiday season. To celebrate this day, we encourage you to consider, Geoscientists *without* Borders® (GWB) to your philanthropic support.
When environmental hardships and natural hazards confront communities, geoscientists create solutions, including managing groundwater; securing sustainable food sources; preparing for earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, and tsunamis; reducing pollution; and saving unique, irreplaceable archaeological sites. These are just a few of the ways GWB enables geoscientists to deliver vital humanitarian relief to communities coping with humanitarian challenges around the globe.
GWB serves as a catalyst by bringing capable scientists together with communities to solve these critical problems. The program provides funding for these projects by assisting geoscientists and their teams in collaborating with multidisciplinary experts and community-based partners. Data is collected, processed, and interpreted to provide resources that result in a sustainable humanitarian benefit to the community. Overall, GWB projects are applying geoscience skills where they are needed most by building sustainable communities around the world.
