We have two days for getting deals – Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On #GivingTuesday, we have a day for giving back. Together, people are creating a new ritual for our annual calendar. #GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season: a reminder of the “reason for the season.”
We are proud to announce that we will be participating in #GivingTuesday for the second year. #GivingTuesday, which is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Occurring this year on November 28, 2017, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
#GivingTuesday also marks the beginning of our end-of-year campaign. Our goal this year will be to raise $2,000 – twice the amount of money we raised last year! The money raised will go towards paying for a space for our two main programs: our After-school Book Club and our Summer Film Camp. We are also looking for a donation in the form of a space to use for our programs. We have outgrown our old space, and the safety and comfort of our campers and staff are of the utmost importance to us.
Our organization is interested in spreading the word about how we are giving back to the community by providing extra-curricular media programs such as Photography, Film, and Reading, with expansion taking place in the upcoming year, and that is why we decided to join #GivingTuesday.
