It’s that time of year!
In between all of the family gatherings and shopping madness of the holiday season lies #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and generosity.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many organizations focus on holiday and end-of-year giving. Just last year, more than 700,000 people participated in #GivingTuesday to raise $116M worldwide!
Summer Search is excited to participate again this year, so mark your calendars for November 29, 2016 to help us make this the most successful #GivingTuesday Summer Search has ever seen! Help us show that the world gives as good as it gets.
Here’s how you can get involved:
1. Make a Gift
Your donation, no matter the size, has a direct impact by providing Summer Searchers with life-changing opportunities to strengthen the skills needed to succeed in school and in life. The need for strong and diverse leadership in this country is greater than ever before, and Summer Search is committed to seeing that through.
Don’t forget to check to see if your employer will match your gift.
2. Share on Social Media
Are you following Summer Search on Facebook and Twitter? Now’s the perfect time to do it!
Spread the #GivingTuesday cheer and join the movement by sharing and/or re-tweeting our posts to tell your friends and family that you support Summer Search!
In the spirit of the season, we’d like to give thanks to our entire Summer Search community for supporting the work that we do for our students.
Happy Giving & Happy Sharing!
