#GivingTuesday is a grassroots campaign that emerged last year to promote a national day of giving at the start of the holiday season on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. #GivingTuesday comes after Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. The idea is to encourage charitable giving – especially online gifts of $5, $10, $25 or more – in support of worthy community service organizations like A Child’s Place.
This year, December 3 will be the second annual #GivingTuesday, and all of us at A Child’s Place hope you will participate with us. To further promote the campaign, we’ve partnered with other United Way agencies in our area to create #GivingTuesdayCLT on Facebook and Twitter. Over the next few days, please watch for, share and retweet #GivingTuesday posts and tweets from A Child’s Place and #GivingTuesdayCLT.
We invite you to help spread the word about #GivingTuesday and to make an online gift to A Child’s Place on December 3 via this website, or to one of the partner agencies who are participating in #GivingTuesdayCLT. Support the good work we’re doing in the greater Charlotte community and help us change the conversation about the true meaning of the holiday season. To make a donation, click here.
