Ready? Set. Go! Is that how you feel now that it is officially the holiday giving season? Is it a race until December 25th? Cards to send, presents to buy and wrap (where’s the tape?), parties to attend. It can feel like a marathon fueled by peppermint mochas, too many appetizers at holiday gatherings and your aunt’s famous fudge. But remember, it’s the holiday GIVING season and wouldn’t it be great for it to feel like you’ve given hope and opportunity to someone?
With that in mind, we are asking for you to join us on December 3rd and celebrate Giving Tuesday by making a gift to the Circle of Sisterhood Foundation. Giving Tuesday originated with charities organizing to create an “opening day” for the holiday giving season.
We hope that with your support we can continue to lift girls and women around the world out of poverty by removing barriers to education. And this year, your impact will be doubled because the Circle of Sisterhood board of trustees will match every gift received up to $5,000! So your $50 gift becomes $100 or your $250 gift becomes $500. We urge you to join us on Giving Tuesday by making your gift go twice as far!
Please also help us spread the word via social media using the hashtag #GivingTuesday and the Circle of Sisterhood graphic above.
All funds collected are designated to the Circle of Sisterhood general grant fund unless otherwise specified.
Together, let’s give so others may receive the gift of an education!
– Christi Flynn, Board of Trustees Member, Circle of Sisterhood Foundation
