Giving Tuesday 2017

I give because …. Giving is a personal thing for each individual.  For me, it means sharing my time, talent and resources with others.  For you, it may be something concrete such as participating in your community play or maybe running a 5K or donating to a favorite nonprofit. Take a moment to consider what giving means to you.  While you are doing this, please think about Advent.

This is the third year for Advent to participate in #GivingTuesday. It 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. Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities.  To learn more about the #GivingTuesday movement, go to https://www.givingtuesday.org/about.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

This is a great way that everyone can have an impact! Join us tomorrow (11/28) by giving back to the Advent community! Every act of generosity counts and each is celebrated. To give to Advent on this wonderful day, go to https://www.adventepiscopalschool.org/page/giving.
