Giving Tuesday is November 28! [usc canada logo with sprout icon]

This Giving Tuesday, let's build a community seed bank in Timor Leste. More than just a place to store seeds, seed banks save crucial crops from disappearing, help ensure communities have a reliable source of healthy, local food, and change lives.

Help us reach our goal of raising $10,000.00 to adapt an existing building to seed bank standards, outfit it with equipment, and train members of the surrounding community to run it. Plus, if you donate by 11:59 PM on November 28, 2017, your gift will be matched by a private donor.

The folks below – Benjamin Soares, Alianca Bui and Tomas Pinto – are all involved in their local community seed bank and have seen the benefits first-hand. With your help, we can support the building of a seed bank in another community and spread the benefits even further.
