Students to join #Giving Tuesday global day
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.
