The newest addition to the roster of holiday events has no calories and doesn’t require fighting crowds in stores…and makes your community a better place.
#GivingTuesday, the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.), comes on November 27 this year. It is a counterweight to the commercialization and consumerism that engulfs us after Thanksgiving. This global day of charity and volunteerism uses the power of technology and social media to encourage people all over the world to contribute time or money (or both!) to hundreds of worthy nonprofit causes. Last year, some $274 million (and countless hours) were generated for thousands of local and national causes.
Senior Planet, a project of the nonprofit Older Adults Technology Services (OATS), is proud to be part of this community. Our efforts to harness the power of technology to change the way we age have spread from diverse communities in New York State to Maryland, Florida, Colorado and Texas. Please consider us for #GivingTuesday so we can continue to help more and more people to Age with Attitude. To make a donation, visit here.
