Get out the Give on #GivingTuesday

in 186 days and 11:41 hours.

Location:
Starts: December 01 2015 @ 12:01 AM
Ends: December 02 2015 @ 12:01 AM

First there was Black Friday... then Cyber Monday... now #GivingTuesday! For the third year, we're an official partner of #GivingTuesday, and we're helping to spread the word to "get out the give."

#GivingTuesday is a movement to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support non-profit organizations. The idea is to make #GivingTuesday a part of our collective experience, much in the way that Black Friday and Cyber Monday became part of the cultural consciousness.

The first Tuesday after Thanksgiving has been designated as #GivingTuesday. This year, #GivingTuesday is December 1. We encourage you to make a meaningful contribution in any way you wish.

If you would like to do a donation drive, please check out our wish list! Of course, monetary donations are always welcome.

The success of #GivingTuesday as a national movement depends on all of us! We encourage everyone to be involved with spreading the word and participating. Families and individuals are encouraged to be generous in whatever ways matter to them.
