GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back. Following Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, Tuesday, December 1, 2015 has been designated as a day for charities, families, businesses, community centers and students around the world to come together to celebrate generosity and to give.
You don't need to be a millionaire or world leader to give back. #GivingTuesday was created with the belief that when everyday people join together in the spirit of giving back extraordinary things can happen.
Last year, our awesome community pulled together to surpass our goal of raising $15,000 on #GivingTuesday. Help us reach (or surpass) our $20,000 goal this year! We are thankful for the contributions of amazing people like you. We couldn’t do what we do without you.
