Thanksgiving is a time for gathering with friends and family and expressing gratitude for all that God has provided throughout the year. However, in the days following – Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday – it’s easy to lose track of what’s really important during this holiday season. Giving Tuesday is a chance for us to reconnect with our community and share the blessings that we have received this year.
Giving Tuesday, often stylized as #GivingTuesday for purposes of hashtag activism refers to the Tuesday after Thanksgiving in the United States. It is a movement to create an international day of giving at the beginning of the holiday season. Giving Tuesday was started in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation as a response to commercialization and consumerism in the post-Thanksgiving season.
Remember our neighbors in need this November 28th by visiting abccm.org/donate and giving to any of ABCCM’s vital ministries. Rest assured your dollars will go for a good cause. ABCCM dedicates 95% of every dollar raised for programming that gives hope and healing to fellow community members who need a little help staying warm this winter, seeing a doctor, or rebuilding after a tragedy. Your Giving Tuesday gift will make all the difference in someone’s life this holiday season.
