GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
GIVE – Donations of $125 made now through Giving Tuesday will be matched by The Coleman Foundation!
COLLECT – donations of cash and checks and drop off to GCS’s State Road Program using our Fundraiser Donation Form or encourage donors to give on our website (Donors can enter your name in the In Honor of box) OR get fancy and create your own GCS Fundraising Page to share with your social media contacts!
Throughout the month leading up to Giving Tuesday, GCS will post awesome pictures and videos of the people we support saying why they love GCS! Please like, share (retweet) these posts with your friends & family.
You can also make your own I Love GCS Because… post with this handy Facebook frame! (Here is a video guide if you haven’t used Facebook frames before.)
Not sure about this Facebook stuff? No problem! Just email your video or photo w/sign to Anne and she will create your frame, share it to GCS’ Facebook & return it for you to share with your contacts on email, Twitter, Instagram & Facebook.
Do you know a business who may be interested in sharing our social media posts, putting our info on their marquee, and/or donating a portion of their Giving Tuesday sales to GCS? Contact us with their information and we’ll get in touch!
