#GivingTuesday is day for giving

10 November 2016

Forget about Black Friday and Cyber Monday. At the Y, we're officially kicking off the holiday season on November 29, 2016 by participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. 

#GivingTuesday is a day dedicated to giving back. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday’s goal is to inspire personal philanthropy, volunteerism, and encourage giving during the holiday season. Taking place November 29—the Tuesday after Thanksgiving—#GivingTuesday will show that the world truly gives as good as it gets.

Your financial commitment to the YMCA makes a lasting impact in the community of your choice. One-time gifts, online giving or long-term pledges are all options. Whether you want to help a child go to YMCA Summer Day Camp, help bridge the education gap by supporting Power Scholars Academy or fund a cancer survivor's participation in LiveSTRONG AT THE YMCA or an adult's enrollment in our YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program, you can find a way to support it by giving to the YMCA's Annual Campaign.

#GivingTuesday is more than a day in November. Start using the hashtag #GivingTuesday on your social media accounts. Tell your friends and family why you give to the YMCA of the South Hampton Roads this giving season!
