Giving Tuesday - Invest in a Start-Up

After carving the turkey, scoring door busters, and scanning the web for online sales, good souls keep the spirit of the season alive.

GivingTuesday is a global movement that unleashes the power of people, who unite to transform their communities. On Tuesday, December 3rd, hop onboard with Cristo Rey Kansas City to fuel the commute.

Ten months out of the year, the Cristo Rey busses are on the road, logging in more than 15,000 miles a month and traveling to more than 40 Zip Codes to

- pick students up at home
- bring students to school
- take students to work study sites across the metro
- pick students up from work and bring them back to school
- take students home from school.

After the school day ends, athletes, debaters and robotics students are back on the bus for events.

“GivingTuesday was launched in 2012 with a simple message:  go into the world and do good,” said Cristo Rey President John O’Connor. “At Cristo Rey, generous community partners employ our students and stand in the gap between what students earn at work study and what the education truly costs. These are the people who make a private, college-prep education available for students across the metro who are from high economic need backgrounds,” he said.

Interested in helping fuel the commute at Cristo Rey? A monthly bus pass costs $38 for home to school. To transport a student worker to one of the more than 120 job sites costs $1,030 per student per year.
