    Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of radical generosity around the world.

    Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

    You can make a difference today by donating to the fundraising efforts of these LPN members:

    • The Latino Racial Justice Circle is raising $10,000 to pay for attorneys for 3 immigrant families so that they stay in the US:  https://www.gofundme.com/help-3-families-get-immigration-legal-assistance.

    • Centro SOL and Comite Latino de Baltimore are raising funds to help families affected by the pandemic.  Monetary donations can be made at jhcentrosol.org/give (make sure you click next to Centro SOL logo to support this campaign!).

    • The Featherstone Foundation announced a $15,000 Giving Tuesday campaign to support their scholarship fund: 
      https://www.facebook.com/donate/1028140308040931.

    • Maryland Physician Care is hosting a Toy Drive through online registries with Walmart, Target, and Amazon.  Toys collected will be donated through partner agencies that work with families in Maryland.  Toy Drive flyer can be seen here.

    • Donations to KIND (Kids in Need of Defense) made today by midnight will be tripled, up to $100,000: https://supportkind.org/.  Donation link is featured on the web banner now!

    This is just a sample of the worthy organizations that you can support this Giving Tuesday.  Thank you for supporting non-profits this holiday season in any way that you can: making a donation, volunteering your time, or sharing their campaigns on your social media... every bit helps!  

    Thank you for all that you do...today and every day.

    Latino Education Advancement Fund (LEAF) thanks David Rosario, State Farm for collaborating to assist Gralyn Trujillo Gordon to receive a $1,000 scholarship to attend Loyola University studying Mechanical Engineering this fall. The scholarship was awarded and presented at the end of the 5a. Cumbre Educativa Para Padres y Estudiantes.

    "Education is a key component in thrusting our Latino students into a level playing field. There is so much that our Latino community does not know about steps that need to be taken to move our kids to higher education,” said David Rosario, State Farm. “LEAF is about educating parents and students to have an early strategy on education. LEAF is leveling the playing field for our students while providing valuable information to parents. Dale Carnegie said it best, “Knowledge is not power, Applied Knowledge is Power!”

    This year’s summit had over 200 attendees including parents and children. There were workshops available for students starting as young as the 2nd grade. The parents’ workshops were held in Spanish. The summit was held Sunday, October 10 at 4:00 pm Eastern time, 3 p.m. Central, and 1 p.m. Pacific Time via Zoom.

    “We know that State Farm is here for us,” said Dinorah Olmos, President and CEO of LEAF. “We are very grateful to David Rosario for collaborating with LEAF and making it possible to give back to the Latino community.”

    Dear Members and Friends of the LPN,

    It’s hard to believe that 2020 is coming to an end. This has been a year of many unprecedented events. As a community, we were tested medically, politically, and socially, and together united, we pushed through the medical challenges of COVID-19, challenged the status quo of our political leaders, and stood shoulder to shoulder (while socially distanced, of course!) to voice our opposition to social injustice, not only in our community but throughout the whole country.

    Being part of the Latino Providers Network, I was lucky not only to work with an amazing Board, but I was also privy to the unity this community was able to achieve in the face of the pandemic and social injustice. Our board, LPN members, and volunteers stepped up to the challenge and together helped a community in need: 

    • Volunteers worked tirelessly to provide food and resources within their communities. Many LPN members collaborated with food banks to make food accessible to those that could not otherwise get to food distribution centers. 
    • COVID-19 testing sites were mobilized in underserved communities to provide much needed testing, and
    • Many dusted off their sewing machines and provided the community with handmade face masks, which we know are necessary to fight the spread of COVID-19.

    In 2020, the gift of giving was alive and well in communities throughout Maryland, and the most valuable gifts shared were kindness, caring, and volunteerism. We were touched and amazed by the generosity shown by so many in a time where the country was divided. This year has shown us what we can accomplish when we work together!  The Latino Providers Network will continue to be the platform where the community can gather and to pursue our mission to maximize resources through advocacy, education, and networking.

    On behalf of our Board of Directors, we send holiday cheers to our LPN members, volunteers, sponsors and the Latino community in Maryland and beyond.

    Que tengan una Feliz Navidad Y un Próspero Año Nuevo!

    David Rosario
    President, LPN Board of Directors
