#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. This year, #GivingTuesday falls on November 28. #GivingTuesday harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together.
What are coming together to support? Girls like Shararah, a 10th grader in our digital literacy program, who need the tools to reach their full potential:
“I am so grateful to participate in the computer class. We are so happy for this opportunity. Before I came here I didn’t know anything about a computer or programs. When our teacher gave us homework to find info from the internet or to do an assignment on a computer I could not do my homework. Now, I can type about a subject, I can make a chart or a list. I ave learned so many valuable things in the computer center. Most important of all, this class is free for all girls, it’s magnificent for us because our families are unable to pay money for programs like this.”
