Key Messages from the Festive Week’s Contents
Festive Season’s Arrangement
The following is the arrangement we have made for the remaining days of 2018.
Queries and enquiries
During the Festive holidays, we will only handle online queries and enquiries until the 7th of January 2019. However, our Winter e-discussion on Volunteering for a New Climate Economy is
still on until the 5th of January 2019 as planned.
Those who want to donate to our fundraising campaigns and projects (such as Gifts of Peace and End-of-Year 2018 Support)
are welcome to do so.
Season of Light
Our Season of Light continues as planned. However, some of our services and activities (such as advice-giving, advocacy etc.) as well as development campaigns are scaled down around this period until the above mentioned return date.
What’s on for the rest of December 2018
For those who want to get a further picture about what has been happening at CENFACS during the remaining days of December 2018, we recommend them to read our three last posts on the Blog page of this site.
People should expect delay from us in returning to their calls/e-mails. We heavily rely on volunteers for most of our services, who are sharing the Winter e-discussion with us during this Festive time. Some of them are already on holidays.
Emergency and exceptions
In case of emergency or exceptional circumstances, please do not hesitate to text/phone; we will respond to your text/phone as soon as we can.
We apologize for any inconvenience or upset this may cause.
We thank you all for your invaluable and sustained support during 2018 and look forward to your continued and further support in the New Year.
We wish you a Very Happy and Peaceful Festive Season!
Peace, Hope and Charity e-Store
Peace and Hope
Our celebratory theme for the Season’s Reliefs is Peace
and continues to be alive to the end of this season. Our theme
for the Season of Light is Hope and is still featuring what have planned to achieve over this season.
CENFACS’ Charity e-Store is opened like any online shop during the festive period for either to shop or donate goods.
Every time you shop or donate goods at CENFACS’ Charity e-Store, you make a helpful difference to people in need over this festive time and beyond it.
We can only help reduce and possibly end poverty if you help us to do so. And this time of the year is a unique opportunity for you once a year to change lives through your invaluable support however
small it may be. Please, don’t miss this marvellous end-of-year opportunity!
Festive Income Boost, All year round projects and The CENFACS Community
Festive Income Boost
For children, young people and families in need on whose behalf we relentlessly advocate, we can expect that they have managed to generate some little extras incomes they need to cover the extra expenses of the Season’s financial pressures. More importantly than anything else, they are managing to exercise their right to decent and deserving festive celebrations.
All year round projects
As our all year-round projects (i.e. Play, Run and Vote for poverty relief and development) come to a close, we would like to take this opportunity to thank those who responded to our call for Action-Results 2018.
The CENFACS Community
We would like as well to express our gratitude to those who replied to the Community Value Chains, the CENFACS Community, by adding their talents and skills to our register.
Main Festive Development
Thanking Year 2018 Makers and Enablers
The work and produce of CENFACS are collective endeavour. The end of the year gives us an opportunity of the many to thank all those who directly and indirectly contributed to the year 2018 either as year maker or enabler.
Perhaps, the best way of thanking could be to do it individually by naming every contributor. There could be a risk of forgetting some supporters. To avoid this risk, we are thanking them collectively although we may have mentioned here and there some names.
Year 2018 has been an amazing one for CENFACS thanks to the contribution of various individuals and organisations. In particular, we would like to mention the following contributors: users, volunteers, web readers and commentators, web reviewers, local people and families, Africa-based Sister Organisations, charitable organisations, non-governmental organisations, third sector organisations, recycling organisations, individuals etc.
Year 2018 has been for us of digital, social media and online technology support as well. This is a new type of support that
we would like to mention without undermining the other and traditional sources of support we normally receive. We would like to thank WordPress.com, Easily.uk and Twitter.com.
WordPress.com, Easily.uk and Twitter.com with their platforms have given us as a charity an amazing opportunity and learning experience to engage the public and other supporters as well as enable us to re-communicate our anti-poverty messages and undertake our work on sustainable development.
Small charitable organisations do not always have the financial means to put their messages across. Having the possibility of using free or sometimes affordable means of communications can enormously
impact the work of these charities. Free or cheap is not always poor quality or option, just as heavily paid option is not always the best one. All depends on what you get.
This is why we are using the opportunity of the end of year to thank all those who made and enabled the year 2018 to work for CENFACS and its beneficiaries.
We would like to express all our feelings of thank you and best wishes of the Season’s Greetings to all our year 2018 Makers and Enablers.
Help CENFACS keep the Poverty Relief work going this festive season.
We do our work on a very small budget and on a voluntary basis. Making a donation will show us you value our work and support CENFACS’ work which is currently offered as a free service.
