#GivingTuesday is an online movement created to kick off the holiday season by encouraging charitable donations to nonprofit organizations.The idea is that there is Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday Cyber Monday, and now, Giving Tuesday. In its second year, #GivingTuesday has grown from a New York based effort to an international effort. Giving Tuesday had over 2,500 nonprofitparticipants in 2012. There are expected to be even more participants this year.We are happy to announce that St. Louis Language Immersion Schools is a proud #GivingTuesday Partner Organization this year. This year, #GivingTuesday is December 3rd. Since we’re celebrating our 5th year anniversary, we are hoping to raise $5,000 dollars in online contributions
On Tuesday, December 3rd, we’ll celebrate #GivingTuesday with some special treats at drop off (while they last!) as a thank you for being part of our great community! We hope that #GivingTuesday will be a huge success and bring us even closer to reaching our goals this year.
We’ll be sharing more about our participation in #GivingTuesday through Facebook (St. Louis Language Immersion Schools), Twitter (@SLLIS) and Pinterest (SLLIS). So if you don’t already, consider following us!
