You’ve heard of Black Friday, and possibly Cyber Monday. But have you heard of Giving Tuesday? Celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday provides a platform that inspires the donation of time, resources, and talents to address local challenges. Giving Tuesday engages nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses, corporations, families, and individuals to start the holiday season in the spirit of generosity. In its seventh year, Giving Tuesday is popular and growing in more than 150 countries.
Our community is invited to start the holiday season off right by giving to Boys Home! All Giving Tuesday donations will support our Accelerated Reading program, which encourages students to read using individualized goals, reading comprehension quizzes, and a variety of prizes. This year, the Accelerated Reading program has been expanded to include all Boys Home students.
On November 26th and 27th, Boys Home is celebrating Giving Tuesday in a special way! Students and staff will kick off the holiday season with two days of emphasis on kindness and generosity. You are invited to join us by sharing how you are spreading kindness and generosity in your own lives.
For more details, take a look at our Facebook page on 11/26 and 11/27.
