Every Gift Makes A Difference... #GivingTuesday Is Nov. 28

Giving Tuesday

e565a25bcf20c317bdd8e0bd1b64f621-huge-woIt is November and if you are engaged with any kind of media, you have probably been hearing about “Black Friday,” “Cyber Monday,” and all of the other “deals” that stores - in person or online - are offering for the holidays.  This always strikes me as funny since the holidays are, typically, a time of reflection and giving to others.  It was this thought that inspired The Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact to create “Giving Tuesday.”

#GivingTuesday is entering its’ 6th year of inspiring others to give back.  After a weekend of shopping in stores and online to grab the best deals, #GivingTuesday is a day to think about what inspires you, what moves you, and give back to that cause, project, or organization.  Green Schools Alliance is excited to be participating in #GivingTuesday this year.  With a lofty vision of a world where every person is aware of and accountable for the impact they have in creating an environmentally, economically and equitably sustainable future, we know that we have a lot of work to do, but we are also well on our way!


When you are thinking about who you would like to support this holiday season, please consider making a gift to Green Schools Alliance.  Just as our vision is lofty, so is our year end fundraising goal.  Our aim is to engage (at least!) 100 new donors and raise $100,000!  WOW!  That is a big goal, but we need to raise money in order to keep moving forward, empowering our students and educators, and inspiring the next generation of changemakers. YOU can help make this happen by making a donation today.  Every gift makes a difference!  We cannot do this work without your support.

By the way, if you make a gift to Green Schools Alliance on Tuesday, November 28th through Facebook, your gift can be doubled! In celebration of #GivingTuesday, Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation are partnering once again on a national campaign to support nonprofits.  On #GivingTuesday, Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will be matching up to $2 million of funds raised on Facebook for US nonprofits. Facebook is also waiving all fees for donations made to nonprofits on Facebook this #GivingTuesday.

If you would like more information, please message me through the community or send an email.  I would love to connect with you and hear your story!
