Giving Tuesday

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. Today, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

We at CTC will be sharing a bunch of #unselfie pictures of families and volunteers who not only give presents to their loved ones during the holiday season, but give time and energy and money to causes that make their communities better places to live. Look for photos and stories from our clients and volunteers all day on Facebook and Twitter.

Join the #unselfie movement today! (instructions here) If we happen to be your organization of choice, tag us @CTC_GR.

If you want to give a thoughtful gift this year, consider giving your loved ones an honorarium  — a monetary gift to CTC in their name. You can pick an amount that is equal to a certain bit of equipment or a number of hours of therapy, and we will send your recipient a card with an example of what your money can do to help fund our agency. (Donate here)

We are very lucky this year to have matching funds for all of our Giving Tuesday efforts donated by Lake Michigan Credit Union, which makes every dollar donated have double the impact. So please dig deep with your end-of-the-year giving, and on this #GivingTuesday help us encourage others to share the gift of giving by giving back to causes that matter.
