#GivingTuesdayby Montgomery Area Food Bank on 12/03/13
What is #GivingTuesday?
First, there was Black Friday. Then came Cyber Monday, an online phenomenon for even more savings! So what are we saving with Giving Tuesday?
#Giving Tuesday is an opportunity to give back, whether it be to your local food bank, posting a status that supports hunger relief, or supporting an online fundraiser. It was created to showcase the giving power of the people and its' successes have escalated every year. The integration of corporate and celebrity sponsorships and social media have turned #GivingTuesday from a "What is that?" to a "Where do I sign up!?"
Although we would like to think that every day is a day to give, #GivingTuesday has brought a 'National Day of Giving' to the forefront and made charity a REASON to give.
For MAFB, this is a way to promote non-profits and other charities, no matter the mission, and continue to help those in need, no matter where they may be. It is also a way to 'mobilize and educate the community' by participating and promoting this wonderful event!
Instead of seeking out savings in your wallet, seek out ways to save Alabamians in need- donate your extra time, raise awareness, or make a monetary donation. It is through the support and power of the community that we can reach out to those who hunger among us.
Be sure to follow the #GivingTuesday activity on Twitter to see what others are doing to help and follow your local food bank @FeedingHopeAL. Or join our Fundraising Team on CrowdRise, for an opportunity to give BIG with help from Kevin Bacon.
As always, thank you for your support of the Montgomery Area Food Bank and helping us on our mission to 'Feed Hope Across Alabama'.
