Giving Tuesday #BecauseofUU
Giving Tuesday #BecauseofUU
In the United States, we have one day for giving thanks, two days for getting deals; now, globally, we have a day for giving back: #GivingTuesday. On Tuesday, December 1st, families, students, community centers, businesses, and charities around the world come together for the common purpose of celebrating generosity, and to give. Please join the Unitarian Universalist Association in this celebration of giving by sharing posts of generosity. You might share a description, image, or video on social media of what you are doing to celebrate Giving Tuesday, or, tell us why you give, with the hashtags #GivingTuesday and #becauseofUU. Whether you can give $7, $70, or $700, your gift between now and midnight tomorrow makes a difference and will go even further by helping us to earn a special #GivingTuesday match. Frank Basile, president of All Souls Unitarian Church in Indianapolis, Indiana, encourages all of us to give to the UUA in honor of our seven principles. Frank has offered a generous matching gift if at least 77 people contribute to the UUA for #GivingTuesday. Need a few ideas? How about exploring the work of the Coalition of International Organizations for inspiration! Here are a few sample tweets of UU values in action, globally: As you consider which organizations to support on Giving Tuesday, please consider making a contribution towards international Unitarian Universalism!
