After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the back-to-back days of deals, join us in kicking off the holiday season of giving November 29: Giving Tuesday!
Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving that unites people and organizations for one common goal: to do good! Over the past four years #GivingTuesday has empowered more than 45,000 organizations in over 75 countries to give back to their communities. In 2015 #GivingTuesday raised over $116 million online across the globe- double what was raised in 2014!
Ways to gear up for GivingTuesday:
- Donate to lock in your gift!
- Does your company match employee donations? (check here FREE through December 13 to find out!)
- Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for exciting updates
- Share this message with friends and family and encourage them to join the movement!
Our Education Department, however, is fully funded by donations. Our youth programs only happen with your help!
What Your Donation Buys:
$400= 1 Fair/Festival Coiled Clay Booth
$200= 1 History on the Go classroom trip
$800= Clay and field trip supplies for a year
Even your donation of just $5 supports one child learning about the cultural history of the early people in the Southern California deserts.
On Giving Tuesday, November 29, a global day of giving, we are focusing all donations on Education! Help us reach our goal of $6,000 raised by the end of the day November 29.
