What is Giving Tuesday?
Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving – a day to unite individuals and organizations worldwide for the common purpose of giving back and helping those in need. Millions of people come together on Giving Tuesday to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.
Following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this year’s Giving Tuesday will take place on November 27th and will kick off the giving season. Every act of generosity counts, and each means even more when we give together. Everyone has something to give. You can give time or expertise, monetary donations large or small, simple acts of kindness, food or clothing.
Where does the Y come in?
The Y is now…as it has always been…a place of possibility and promise for all. Unfortunately, in times when the true power of “us” is unknown to many and our bonds are fraying, we must do even more to enhance our human connections. That’s why the Y passionately focuses on strengthening communities.
Every day in the Siouxland area, the Y supports kids, adults, seniors and families with programs that protect, teach, connect, heal, nourish and encourage. Everything we do helps communities and the “us” who live in them to thrive. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together.
We can’t do it alone. This Giving Tuesday, donate for a better us.
