#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration of working together to bring awareness of ways to GIVE!
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
One of the best ways to get involved is in your own community. We've created a local directory to help you find organizations, charities, events and more in the heart of our Jasper County Community.
How do I get involved?!
Check out this website, and be sure to visit the "GIVE" page which includes a list of some of the local non-profit, with ways to give!
And, join many of the Jasper based nonprofit organizations, on Tuesday, November 28th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Wesley Center at the First United Methodist Church at 329 North Bowie for the Inaugural #GivingTuesdayJasper Expo.
Jasper is home to approximately 40 nonprofit organizations that need our support of time, talent and treasure. With all of the great causes to choose from, you are sure to find an organization that will be a great fit for yourself, your family, and one that you will enjoy serving.
If you are in search of an opportunity to Engage, Connect and Serve, with one or more nonprofits in our area, learn more about personal community involvement and contribution, or are interested in learning more about the #GivingTuesday campaign, then the expo is the place to be.
