Countdown to #GivingTuesday December 3, 2019
For anyone who ever wished to have the power to make a really big impact on their community, and on the world, GivingTuesday can be a dream come true.
Last year, more than 3.6 million people from 150 countries joined together to raise $400 million on GivingTuesday. We stand ready to keep the momentum going this year to fuel the critical community cornerstones of education, financial stability and health here in Southeast Louisiana.
GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people in our community to rally around the causes they believe in and build stronger neighborhoods, cities and regions. On this day, every single act of volunteerism or donation is amplified by the sheer number of people from our community joining in. And we’re proud to stand with our Community Partners to make that impact go even farther.
Established in 2012 as a celebratory kickoff to the holiday giving season, GivingTuesday happens on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving and has become a worldwide philanthropic event. This year, GivingTuesday will be on December 3, and you can join in to help power change for Southeast Louisiana, whether it’s your first time or you’ve participated before.
The power of one. The impact of many.
The best part about GivingTuesday? It doesn’t take a heroic effort to make an impact. Giving just a little more packs a powerful punch. Donate the $5 you would spend on a cup of coffee and provide a meal or that $10 app for your phone can help someone receive a pair of reading glasses. And the power of any amount you donate is supercharged by the collective giving that will happen on December 3. Give a little more.
