#GivingTuesday is a global day of Philanthropy. The purpose the day is to raise awareness of the good work that nonprofit organizations do. Another purpose is to encourage financial generosity toward those nonprofits. Last year was the first year that the Shrine participated in #GivingTuesday and you helped us raise $42,000 on that day. We are most grateful. This year’s goal is $50,000.
This year #GivingTuesday falls on December 1 and will have a different twist to it. A very generous anonymous donor has come forward and promises to give us another $50,000 if we reach our $50,000 goal on #GivingTuesday. Please help the Shrine take advantage of this generous offer. It would be great to be able to say that we raised $100,000 for 100 Arch Street in one day.
