GIVING TUESDAY
 


Black Tuesday. Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday.

November 28, 2017

What is #GivingTuesday exactly? It’s a national movement during the holidays dedicated to charitable giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are synonymous with holiday shopping. The goal of #GivingTuesday is to encourage people everywhere including retailers, charities, online organizations, community centers, individuals and families to come together with one common purpose -- to help others and incentivize ways to give more, give smarter, and celebrate the great American spirit of generosity through charitable contributions and volunteerism.

Help kick-off the holiday giving season with our #GivingTuesday campaign. Click on https://www.gofundme.com/lafayette-elementary-pta-seattle to donate!
