#GivingTuesday, a national day of giving (December 2)

#GivingTuesday is a first of its kind effort that will harness the collective power of a unique group of partners- charities, families, businesses- to transform how we think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season.  Taking place on December 2, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday will inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities and give back in better and smarter ways.  You can take this opportunity to go to your social media accounts and create a national moment of giving!

One of PATH NC’s partners, On Eagles Wings Ministries has developed a Generous Hearts toolkit in preparation for #GivingTuesday.  You can also find other kits for schools, businesses, and social media ambassadors at www.oneagleswingsministries.org.

There are a number of actions individuals can take on December 2, #GivingTuesday.  For example, you can go to your social media accounts and upload an “UNSelfie“, a picture of yourself with a card explaining why you will be giving this season.  Other actions you can take include holding a neighborhood bake sale and hosting an awareness night at your local church or community center.

In contrast to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday will work to express the true meaning of the holiday season:  giving to others.  Every action you take in support of this effort will show why giving is important, and it will impel others to join!  For more information about the #GivingTuesday movement, you can contact Brenda Emmons at development@oewm.net.
