"Give a dollar, give a home, give a tree,
give your time, give your skills, give your voice..."
Entering its sixth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
#GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners— nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals—to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness.
Using email, Facebook, and Instagram, UCA wants to get the conversation started, sharing how God is at work in the mission of the school and encouraging others to become part of the UCA community. We have some Good News to share in Christ, and we have wonderful news to share about the growth and education of our students. During the coming weeks we will begin to share some of these stories and ideas on Facebook. On #GivingTuesday we will offer an alternative to the commercial events of Black Friday and Cyber Monday by encouraging hundreds to GIVE to UCA.
Watch for these stories, and help us launch #GivingTuesday, UCA style. Send us your stories, your thoughts, your words of thanks regarding what God is doing in your lives through the ministry of UCA or use the hashtag #GivingTuesdayatUCA on Facebook.
