Giving Tuesday

As we prepare for Thanksgiving next week, many of us may also be looking ahead to Black Friday and Cyber Monday as we begin our Christmas shopping and bargain hunting to find that perfect holiday gift.

But do you also know about #Giving Tuesday?

#Giving Tuesday got its start in 2012 as a way to bring attention to nonprofit organizations that are helping to make the world a better place. It has also become an unofficial and highly successful kick-off for charitable giving at the end of the year. In 2016, #Giving Tuesday helped raise a record-breaking $168 million in online gifts worldwide!

This year’s #Giving Tuesday is on November 28! Amid the hub-bub of the holidays, the UMRC Foundation invites you to take a moment to consider how you can help make a difference in the lives of older adults:
