Today, November 30, is GivingTuesday, when people around the world join through generosity in all its forms by sharing acts of kindness and giving their voice, time, money, goods, and advocacy to support communities and causes.
It’s a simple idea (and we can do it every day!). Help a neighbor or stranger out, show up for an issue or for people we care about, or give some of what we have to those who need our help. Generosity gives everyone the power to make a positive change in the lives of others and is a fundamental value anyone can act on.
In the United States, many nonprofits use GivingTuesday as way to help raise flexible funds for their work. If you choose to give to Growth & Justice today, we will put that flexible funding to work planning and implementing our 20th anniversary gathering in 2022. You can also help us with your ideas for and participation in planning this special event. Send ideas and your interest in planning to our president, Jane Leonard, at email@example.com.
Please help us with your financial contributions, too, and spread the word. We received a $1000 donation this morning from a long-time supporter to kick off GivingTuesday. You can donate online at https://www.growthandjustice.org/support or send a check to Growth & Justice, 970 Raymond Ave, Suite 201, St. Paul, MN 55114. Any amount is appreciated and will be put to good work!
Thank you! Happy GivingTuesday from the staff and board members of Growth & Justice!
