The Holidays are getting closer and the giving season is near! Not only does that mean great deals are in the stores, it also means that there are great opportunities to get involved and give back! This holiday season, on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving we invite you join #GivingTuesday and donate to Journey Home! #GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. This year, #GivingTuesday falls on November 28. #GivingTuesday harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together. On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, charities, families, businesses, community centers and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.
This will be Journey Home’s third year participating in a #GivingTuesday campaign. Our first year we raised $1,000; our second year we raised $2,000; and this year our goal is to raise $5,000! With your help, we know we will be able to reach that goal! Look out for our upcoming emails, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram posts and share with your friends! Follow us @JourneyHomeCT to stay updated with our #GivingTuesday campaign and how your dollar can make a difference. But don’t forget, #GivingTuesday is not only about donating money, it is also about donating time, advocating for causes that you care about, and getting involved! #GivingTuesday is so much more than one day in November. Pledge to do more the following year. For instance, you can give a certain amount every month to a charity, pledge to volunteer every month or launch a payroll giving program to continue to give back. The sky’s the limit! How will you give back this giving season?
