As the holiday season brings cash flowing to retail businesses, non-profits are benefiting thanks to #GivingTuesday. #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Created by the team at the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact at the 92nd Street Y—a cultural center in New York City that, since 1874, has been bringing people together around the values of service and giving back—#GivingTuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving. A team of influencers and founding partners joined forces, collaborating across sectors, offering expertise and working tirelessly, to launch #GivingTuesday and have continued to shape, grow and strengthen the movement.
We invite you to participate with us. Your gift to Brown County United Way will help our community assist the one in three Brown County households that struggles to make ends meet.
Our 2018 Giving Campaign continues to shine the spotlight on ALICE. ALICE stands or Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. ALICE is our neighbor, our family and friends. When you make a donation to support Brown County United Way, you join the fight for ALICE and help us achieve our community goal: 10,000 individuals on the path to stability in 10 years.
We embrace the dream that everyone should have the opportunity to attain optimal health, education, financial wellbeing, and connection to the community. By working together and taking action, we can give voice to the thousands of individuals and families in every Brown County community who are ALICE.
#GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together.
