#GivingTuesday. The global day of giving, which occurs annually the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, is a wonderful opportunity to help those in need. As this day of giving has grown in popularity, so are the number of ways you can show your support. We’re here to give you seven ideas on how you can make an impact on November 27.
Be a #ChangeMaker. Each one of us can make a difference. And just how little acts of kindness add up to a whole lot, so can the loose change in your pocket! Check under those couch cushions and don’t forget to look in that winter coat you haven’t worn since last year. The Associated will have drop-off locations throughout the community where you can donate your spare change. While you’re at it, take a selfie with your change with the hashtag #ChangeMaker and spread the word on social media! Learn more here.
Round Up. Don’t carry coins? Not a problem. The Associated has an app where you can round up your purchases to the nearest dollar, turning that latte or sandwich into a little something extra. It’s a simple way to give, not just on #GivingTuesday, but all year long. To learn more about the app and to sign up you can click here.
Live With Purpose. Jewish Volunteer Connection (JVC), an agency of The Associated, creates monthly volunteer opportunities that are fun and easy to do. Often serving as a fun activity to share with friends and family, Live with Purpose is a unique way to give back, especially for those with busy schedules. For November, the JVC will be hosting their annual Thanksgiving Casserole Challenge, inviting participants to challenge their friends to make as many casseroles as possible. All Casseroles will be donated to support families and individuals in need.
