You know about Black Friday, you know about Cyber Monday—do you know about Giving Tuesday? It’s an international day of giving that was established in 2012, and it’s happening on December 1. We invite you to mark your calendars and participate with us!
This year, the Learning Resource Center is celebrating the day by raising money for our GED program, which offers one-to-one tutoring and support for students in our community who are studying to attain their GED.
There are tons of ways to get involved! Donate to our GED fund, spread the word about our fundraiser, and keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter accounts for stories from our GED students about how your support can make a difference in their lives.
Can’t wait until the event? Click here to donate and support our adult students now!
We have joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide, and hope that you will too!
#GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday, Small Business Saturday 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. This year the initiative will take place on Tuesday, December 1, 2015.
Those who are interested in joining us for the LRC #GivingTuesday initiative can make a donation online at https://secure.qgiv.com/for/lrcpolk. The donations we receive will help further our cause in helping deserving students receive the educational help that they need and providing students the opportunity to reach their maximum potential.
#GivingTuesday is a movement to celebrate and provide incentives to give—the 2015 iteration will be held on December 1, 2015. This effort harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners—nonprofits, businesses and corporations as well as families and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. #GivingTuesday inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they celebrate and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday harnesses the power of social media to create a global moment dedicated to giving around the world.
