What is #Giving Tuesday?
Now in its fifth year, #Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. #Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. #Giving Tuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy.
What does #Giving Tuesday look like at CCCS?
By now you have probably received a few emails showing our needs at CCCS this year. You are invited to give to whichever category you feel resonates the most with you. Any gifts not designated to a particular category will go to the general fund and used where most needed.
