The DWR Boys & Girls Club id participating in #GivingTuesdayAR on Dec. 2!
Giving Tuesday is a national movement switches the spotlight from purchases to local philanthropy
The Giving Tuesday movement will be acknowledged by organizations across the state with the help and support of the Arkansas Nonprofit Alliance. While Black Friday promotes holiday shopping and Cyber Monday encourages online sales, Giving Tuesday puts the spotlight on opportunities for charitable giving during the holiday season.
“We are celebrating the holidays by promoting a season of giving rather than providing door-busting clearance sales. Because of the statewide support provided by the Arkansas Nonprofit Alliance, we expect this year’s Giving Tuesday to be a great success,” said Becky Brink, Director of Development. “This movement was created to impact lives during a time of year when people can clearly see the needs of people within their community. Giving to an organization you care about is a powerful and emotionally fulfilling way to celebrate the holiday season. We believe that communities in Arkansas will be eager to participate in this outwardly focused movement.”
Donations will be accepted during the days leading up to Dec. 2. Any size donation, whether big or small, will be accepted.
#GivingTuesdayAR is a day of giving promoted in Arkansas by the Arkansas Nonprofit Alliance. The national Giving Tuesday movement promotes charitable giving to local nonprofit organizations. New York’s 92nd Street Y was the catalyst and incubator for Giving Tuesday, bringing the expertise of 139 years of community-management to the project and providing Giving Tuesday a home. The United Nations Foundation joined as a partner, bringing its strategic and communications clout to the project. A powerful list of corporations and nonprofits agreed to be founding partners, helping spread the word and committing to their own Giving Tuesday initiatives.
