SCAN has joined #GivingTuesday, a worldwide effort that will harness the collective power of a unique blend of partners—charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Taking place December 2, 2014 – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – #GivingTuesday will harness the power of social media to create a national moment around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping.
Noted as “one of the best nonprofits in the DC region” by the Catalogue for Philanthropy this year, we’ll be accepting donations on December 2nd through their site here, where we’ll track our goal of raising $5,000 during one day of giving. We also welcome you to join our Council of Young Professionals in posting a photo to our Facebook page or Twitter feed with the hashtags #givingtuesday and #unselfie. Tell your friends about why you choose to support SCAN on #GivingTuesday!
