Have you ever heard of #GivingTuesday? It is a world-wide day of giving that was created in 2012 by individuals, families, organizations, and businesses wanting to give back to their communities after the shopping rush of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Today, we at SMSF are officially launching our end of year campaign by announcing our #GivingTuesday 2019 Campaign: Give to Thank Our Teachers!
#GivingTuesday is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and proves that everyone has something to give to their community. Donations given, big or small, show more than due-diligence of fundraising. It shows that communities can come together to bring collective change and goodwill back.
This year, #GivingTuesday is on December 3, 2019, and we hope that our San Marino community can come together to support San Marino schools and the students within them. Last year, SMSF raised over $65,000 during our #GivingTuesday Campaign – all thanks to our incredible supporters. This support funded a portion of a full-time teaching position.
We are hoping to surpass this amount for our campaign this year, but we will need your help. Will you join us and our community and make a contribution on #GivingTuesday?
