#GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. It's been 10 years, and Giving Tuesday has grown into a global movement. Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give. This year the special day is on Tuesday, November 29th!
Turtle Wing Foundation has branded their #GivingTuesday campaign #GivingWingsDay. Anyone wishing to support this effort can donate directly on Facebook, potentially doubling their contribution. This is due to a local $10,000 match, including $5,000 contributed by J Bar B Foods. Also, Facebook is waiving all fees associated with donations, so 100% of your contribution will go toward Turtle Wings mission!
If you would like to participate in #GivingWingsDay, donate through our facebook fundraiser, stop by our office, or mail a donation! If you are unable to donate and you would still like to support, you can "share" our fundraiser on Facebook, or start your own, and invite your family & friends to contribute!
Giving Tuesday is such an important day for ALL nonprofits, which play a huge role in a thriving community, so we encourage you to give to a nonprofit within your community that has a special place in your heart, especially on this world-wide day of giving!
