Join the #GivingTuesday generation
Posted on December 3rd, 2013 by Beth
After spending last Thursday being thankful, we’ve all had two days to shop for deals. Now, today, #GivingTuesday is our chance to show that holidays can be both about gift-giving and giving back, too. The mission statement on the #GivingTuesday web site explains:
#GivingTuesday™ is a campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations.
#Giving Tuesday started last year as a way to focus attention on the spirit of giving throughout the holiday season, and it’s back again this year. Join in the spirit and donate to Easter Seals today. Every year, with your support, Easter Seals helps nearly 1.8 million children and adults with disabilities live more independent and fulfilling lives.
Your generosity today will allow us to meet the growing demand for our critical services this winter and in the year ahead. Your donation will provide early intervention therapies for children, physical rehabilitation programs, job training for veterans and young adults with disabilities, and so much more. Please make a gift to Easter Seals today and spread the word.
