Giving Tuesday Is HERE !

By Kate Levin


Today is #GivingTuesday, the last  "mass call to action" following the Thanksgiving holiday. While we are all familiar with Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, there is another day to indulge. What sets this day apart from all the others is that the more you indulge, the stronger your community is for it!
Tuesday the 28th is  #GivingTuesday which began in 2012 and was created by the team at the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact at the 92nd Street Y in New York City with the goal of bringing people together around the values of service and giving back. Fueled by the power of social media and focused on the true values of this season, #GivingTuesday is a celebration of giving that holds the potential to create powerful change in our communities.
As a registered #GivingTuesday partner, YMCA SOUTHCOAST isreaching out to individuals and businesses across the Southcoast to ask for their support. Join us on Facebook or at any of our six locations: Wareham, Mattapoisett, New Bedford, Dartmouth, Fall River and Swansea and give for good!
YMCA SOUTHCOAST is a charitable nonprofit organization. At the center of our mission is the commitment that our programs and services are available to all, regardless of their ability to pay.  As an organization we are able to live that mission fully because folks like you have recognized the need and have given, in whatever way they can.
#GivingTuesday is about Giving: It is about giving of the resources you have to spare. It is about raising money to support the needs in our community. #GivingTuesday is about taking a moment out of the hustle and bustle that surrounds us from November through January and using it to do good.
When you do good, you feel good; and you make our community better.
So tomorrow, consider partnering with YMCA SOUTHCOAST and make a commitment to do whatever good you can. Donate: give of your time, your talent, your financial resources, however you are able. Please visit us on Facebook and click the donate button or stop by
