Stu­dents to join #Giv­ing Tues­day global day

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - COMMUNITY -

West Fal­low­field Chris­tian School has joined #Giv­ingTues­day, a global day of giv­ing that har­nesses the col­lec­tive power of in­di­vid­u­als, com­mu­ni­ties and or­ga­ni­za­tions to en­cour­age phi­lan­thropy and to cel­e­brate gen­eros­ity world­wide. Oc­cur­ring this year on Nov. 29, #Giv­ingTues­day is held an­nu­ally on the Tues­day af­ter Thanks­giv­ing (in the U.S.) and the widely rec­og­nized shop­ping events Black Fri­day and Cy­ber Mon­day to kick­off the hol­i­day giv­ing sea­son and in­spire peo­ple to col­lab­o­rate in im­prov­ing their lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties and to give back in im­pact­ful ways to the char­i­ties and causes they sup­port.

West Fal­low­field Chris­tian School has par­tic­i­pated in this “day of giv­ing back” for the past two years. The school is cur­rently cel­e­brat­ing its 75th year of part­ner­ing with par­ents and churches to pro­vide a Christ-cen­tered ed­u­ca­tion.

92Y − a cultural cen­ter in New York City that, since 1874, has been bring­ing peo­ple to­gether around its core values of com­mu­nity ser­vice and giv­ing back, con­cep­tu­al­ized #Giv­ingTues­day as a new way of link­ing in­di­vid­u­als and causes to strengthen com­mu­ni­ties and en­cour­age giv­ing. In 2015, the fourth year of the move­ment, #Giv­ingTues­day brought to­gether over 45,000 part­ners in 71 coun­tries and helped raise nearly $117 Mil­lion on­line in the US alone.
