A cause near and dear to my heart… My children are blessed to receive a fantastic education at Mother Seton School, both academically and spiritually. We are one of the many families who benefit from tuition assistance, which is the only way it’s possible for us to send our children. The school is participating in a #GivingTuesday campaign to attract 50 new donors this year. If you have just $1 to spare to donate to help them reach the goal, or if you can spare a little time to spread the word on your social media network, it would be greatly appreciated! “Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you.” Luke 6:38
You’ve heard of Black Friday. And Cyber Monday. Now, there’s even talk of Red Thursday. It is ridiculous how shopping for sales seems to have replaced the birth of Christ as the focus of the Christmas season.
But there is an antidote: #GivingTuesday. Held on the first Tuesday after Black Friday/Cyber Monday (this year it falls on December 2nd), #GivingTuesday is a global initiative to put the focus on charitable giving. From the FAQ page at the #GivingTuesday website:
What is #GivingTuesday™?
#GivingTuesday™ (#GT) is a movement created to celebrate giving on the Tuesday
following Cyber Monday. The third annual GivingTuesday is on December 2, 2014. In the
same way that retail sector takes part in Cyber Monday, we want the giving community
to come together for #GivingTuesday. We ask that partners create and commit to a
project for/on #GivingTuesday and then help spread the word to their networks.
