The campaign “Rise and Serve!” was held from March 15th to 21st and is already behind us. Its objective was to invite the whole Lasallian network and particularly young people to share the service projects they have been doing all year round and to celebrate our commitment to the educational service of the children most vulnerable. We have received initiatives from ministries in Burkina Faso, Guatemala, Lebanon, the United States, Mexico and more. Thank you very much to everyone who participated using the hashtags #WeAreLaSalle and #Service!
We would now like to encourage you to reflect on how you can continue to celebrate the service projects that you are carrying out. You are doing some exceptional work, and it is important that the rest of the Lasallian world be in the know!
Here are three concrete examples from which you can get some inspiration.
The Lasallian Region of North America is organizing a great campaign to celebrate all service initiatives in the Region, and it is currently underway. It is called “Spring into Action”. Go check it out: https://www.facebook.com/YoungLasalliansRelan/?ref=br_rs
The District of Central America and Panama is also organizing a thematic campaign based on the Institute’s annual theme, “One Call, Many Voices”. Have a look at what they are doing: http://lasalleca.org/actividad-de-campa%C3%B1a-comunidad-y-gestiones-de-animaci%C3%B3n-distrital
Finally, Christian Brothers University in Memphis, United States, organized a service campaign in the month of September. We took advantage of the last few days to highlight their zeal. Here is the official page of the event: https://www.facebook.com/septemberofservice/?hc_ref=SEARCH&fref=nf
