A Global Day of Giving!

The Basics: Giving Tuesday is a national day for giving back to your favorite non profits.  What makes Giving Tuesday so unique is that you are able to give on socail media, our website or even mail in your payment.  Giving begins on November 29, 2016.

Leading up to and on November 29th, we will promote Giving Tuesday on our website, Facebook, Twitter and through email.   Giving will take place primarily on our website, and all communications will include a link to donate on our website.  However, as the spirit of Giving Tuesday is to encourage philanthropy and volunteerism, we will gratefully accept donations through all methods.  We need you, our friends and supporters, to help us get the word out to your networks about the Coalition and opportunity to support our important work. The more people you reach out to and the more you personalize your communications to others and tell them why you support PreventionFIRST!, the more successful the campaign will be.

Social Media:  We will disseminate Giving Tuesday information on Facebook and Twitter.  Please friend PreventionFIRST! on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.  When you see Giving Tuesday information, retweet us and like our Facebook posts.  You can also tweet and post your personal reasons for supporting the Coalition.

Emails:  We will send out Giving Tuesday e-mail blasts that you can forward to your contacts, ideally with a note from you explaining why you are supporting the Coalition.

Website: We will post Giving Tuesday information on our website, and most donations will run through our website.

Beyond Social Media:  There are many other ways to involve other people and here are a few examples: 

  • Donate toiletry items to Project ReFRESH! our service project that helps local youth in need. The goal of this service is to provide hygiene products to build confidence and optimism for a vibrant future for local boys and girls. Items that are being collected for both boys and girls include soap, deodorant, lotion, shaving cream, razors, tampons/pads, toothpaste/toothbrush, and shampoo/conditioner.
  • Businesses can donate a portion of the day’s proceeds to PreventionFIRST! or put out a coin jar.  Companies can hold a pay to “dress down day” and donate proceeds. 
  • Youth clubs, sports teams or a group of friends can hold fundraisers such as a bake sale, movie night with admission, walk-a-thon, etc.   Parents can match kids’ donations.  Skip some lattes between now and then and donate the savings; better yet –challenge a friend or group to do the same and see who can raise more money. 

 The possibilities are endless so have some fun and see what you can think of.  Tell us what you have planned and we will share that with others!  If you have questions, an idea you would like to share or need support materials, such as a sign, information or thank you notes to distribute, please let us know so we can help.
