Giving Tuesday represents a great opportunity to show your support for Adoption STAR by making a financial contribution to our agency or volunteering at our main office.
Although Thanksgiving weekend has come to an end, we hope you’ll still consider “giving thanks” for Adoption STAR on Giving Tuesday (this Tuesday, December 2nd). For those unfamiliar with Giving Tuesday, here’s a bit of insight (from the initiative’s website www.givingtuesday.org):
“We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.”
Here are two options for folks that are interested in supporting Adoption STAR:
1. Make a financial contribution to our agency! This can be done easily and quickly via our website. Please visit this section:
As you’ll see when you read over the web page, you can make a donation via a credit card or mail us a check. Please put “Giving Tuesday 2014” in the memo section of your check if that’s your preferred method of payment.
