“Giving Tuesday started as a day for anyone, anywhere to give and it’s grown into the biggest giving movement in the world.” -GivingTuesday.org
You’ve probably heard of Giving Tuesday, but do you know why so many people come together each year on Giving Tuesday to support nonprofit organizations like Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen?
For some, our Thanksgiving traditions include spending money on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, when great deals on products surround us. Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 to counteract the large amount of spending that happens on Black Friday and Cyber Monday with philanthropic giving to charities in need of support.
Since Giving Tuesday began in 2012, the date has set new donation records each year and has become more popular and more impactful each year as social media spreads the word to new donors.
To support Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen on Giving Tuesday, we’d like to ask you to do two things. First, if you’re able, please donate to support our meal programs. Second, share your experience with Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen with your community. Whether it’s through a social media post, an email, or a conversation with your friends & family around the Thanksgiving table, sharing our organization with people in your life is one of the ways you can have the biggest impact on the Soup Kitchen.
This year, Giving Tuesday will take place on Tuesday, November 30th. This Thanksgiving, we hope you’ll encourage your family and friends to give back at Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen.
