The holiday season is officially in full swing, and amidst all of the shopping, feasting, and toasting, it is easy to get swept away. #GivingTuesday is a new holiday tradition that the whole world is enthusiastically embracing. On December 1st, #GivingTuesday celebrates generosity and volunteerism. Here in North Tahoe-Truckee, we celebrate #GivingTuesday as just the beginning to our Give Back Tahoe Campaign for collective giving.
On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. #GivingTuesday is an opportunity to use social media for social good. Last years giving season was fun, exciting and left the warm feeling of giving in all of us. To amplify those feelings, SVI is participating in Give Back Tahoe’s Challenge Grants. Challenge Grants can take a number of forms but the idea is the same: at certain hours and on certain days, nonprofits and donors will be rewarded for exemplary fundraising efforts. This means that whatever funds are raised during the Challenge will be boosted by sponsored Challenge Grants of hundreds or thousands of dollars!
Donation will be accepted on the GiveBackTahoe.org site under The SVI page HERE.
