Created as a social media movement, Giving Tuesday has become a global day of giving – a way for everyone to show how much they care for the nonprofits near and dear to their hearts. In conjunction with a donation of time and money, nonprofit supporters are able to spread the word about their organizations through social media posts and hashtags. This year, Giving Tuesday will be on November 29, 2016.
Over the past three years, Starr has encouraged our friends on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to show their love of kids and families through donations and posts about why they give to Starr. With each year, our friends continue to surprise us by surpassing our goals. This year, we have high hopes that, once again, our goal will be exceeded.
For 2016, generous benefactors Bill and Susan Gillam are challenging fellow supporters to double their impact – for the first $5,000 given to Starr on November 29, they will match it! Your gift can make a huge difference in the lives of children and families.
As supporters of Starr, Bill and Susan know that every dollar makes a difference, so make your giving count – donate to Starr on November 29, and ensure that your dollar goes twice as far. Thank you for your continued support, and don’t forget to share on social media using #GivingTuesday!
