“#GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners— nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals—to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness.
As a global movement, #GivingTuesday unites countries around the world by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.”
Join us not only today, but every Tuesday for the rest of December and donate your time or monies to a charity/organization of your choice. Together we can make a difference. Tag your images #cu_givingtuesday on Instagram or Facebook and share with us who you donated to and why. No amount is too small, no act of kindness is not appreciated. We have so much to be thankful for, this is the season for giving. Let’s make a difference!
One of our Childhood Unplugged members, Jenny Solar together with her husband Josh are raising three children, two who are living with Cystic Fibrosis. They face challenges daily.
They have given this Tuesday to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to help raise not only awareness but hope that their children will see a cure in their lifetime.
Some of you may be aware that my middle son Matthew is affected with autism. We face challenges raising him every single day. My husband and I are so very thankful that he attends a school that is solely for children on the spectrum; a charter school that is truly a one of it’s kind place here in South Florida.
South Florida Autism Charter School, aka SFACS is in the process of raising monies for a new campus and building. What is amazing about this school is that they are not stopping there. They are also building for tomorrow as our children become adults with a center and housing community. This Tuesday I donated monies for SFACS!
