Forget about Black Friday and Cyber Monday. At the Y, we’re officially kicking off the holiday season on November 28, 2017 by participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving.
WHAT IS #GIVING TUESDAY?
#GivingTuesday is a day dedicated to giving back. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday’s goal is to inspire personal philanthropy, volunteerism, and encourage giving during the holiday season. Taking place November 28 – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – #GivingTuesday will show that the world truly gives as good as it gets.
The Y is now…as it has always been…a place of possibility and promise for all. Unfortunately, in times when the true power of “us” is unknown to many and our bonds are fraying, we must do even more to enhance our human connections. That’s why the Y passionately focuses on strengthening communities.
Every day, the Y supports kids, adults, seniors and families with programs that protect, teach, connect, heal, nourish and encourage. Everything we do helps empower communities and the “us” who live in them to thrive. When you donate to the Greater Marco Family YMCA, you make Collier County better and the “us” who live there stronger. This Giving Tuesday, Donate For A Better Us.
YOUR GIFT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
We have an extraordinary opportunity to ensure a brighter future for our community, but we need your help. Your gift to the Greater Marco YMCA will have a lasting impact by helping us to reach more people through life-changing programs and services.
We can’t do it alone. With your help, the YMCA can continue to turn no one away due to an inability to pay. This Giving Tuesday, Donate For A Better Us.
