What’s your favorite day of the week?
At least on Nov. 27, Tuesday ranks at the top as KidWorks “favorite day.” That’s because it’s #GivingTuesday—the global day of giving since 2012. #GivingTuesday always occurs after Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Everybody has something to give. Whether you come together with your family, your community, your company or your favorite non-profit, it’s an opportunity for you to find a way to give back and then share your ideas.
By joining “A Global Day of Giving,” you’re a part of something big! Here are some fun statistics about the event:
150 countries are involved
$300 million has been raised online
2.5 million gifts have been made
21.7 billion social media impressions
We invite you to join the #GivingTuesday movement here at KidWorks! Here are some ways that you can walk with KidWorks this giving Tuesday—and going forward:
Give time—Volunteer: Our students in preschool through high school are excelling academically because of our tremendous after-school volunteer tutors. Volunteering at KidWorks is fun, and you can help in a way that perfectly fits with your schedule. We also need help out at our major yearly fundraisers—a luncheon and golf event. Or you can use your skills to teach a special skill or talent as part of a workshop. There are endless ways to volunteer with us.
Give Pro-bono: You, your company, group or organization can contribute time, services and resources in the areas of expertise where you excel. This can include tutoring, graphic design, hosting workshops for students, consulting, mentoring and in-kind gifts, to name just a few.
Give back: Your financial contributions and in-kind gifts make possible our proven programs in the areas of academics, spiritual/leadership development, artistic expression and physical fitness. You’re helping students from preschool to college/university readiness!
Giving Tuesday is all about sharing. If you join the Giving Tuesday Movement, please share your story about how you are “Giving Back to KidWorks” on social media and invite others to join the Movement.
At KidWorks, this special Tuesday is not just about giving—it’s also about our gratitude for everyone who’s been with us on our journey to support KidWorks. During the month of November, we will highlight volunteers, partners and friends who are giving back to KidWorks.
We’re convinced these stories will touch your heart—so please watch for them soon.
