#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. #GivingTuesday, which is always the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, 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.
Turtle Wing Foundation has branded their #GivingTuesday campaign #GivingKidsWingsDay2018. Anyone wishing to support this effort can donate directly on Facebook, potentially tripling their donation due to the generosity of Mc Court & Sons Equipment and Anderson Foundation along with Facebook and PayPal who are matching a total of up to $7 million of donations made through Facebook across the world. A second option is to set up their own fundraiser through their personal page. Anyone interested in doing so can download a guide fromhttps://www.facebook.com/fundraisers/ and create a Facebook fundraiser that in turn they can share with their friends on #GivingTuesday. Creating a fundraiser is easy and Turtle Wing welcomes fundraiser support at any goal amount. There are no fees on donations made on November 27!
Turtle Wing has been providing Early Intervention, Supplemental Services and Community Education & Advocacy programming to children and families from Colorado, Fayette, Lavaca and surrounding counties with academic, social-emotional, behavioral and/or developmental needs since 2012.
