What is #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.
What happens on Giving Tuesday?
People participate in a variety of ways, from posting #unselfies to share their stories to donating time and money to the charities of their choice.
What is CTC doing?
We are sharing a bunch of #unselfie pictures of families and volunteers who give time and energy and money to causes that make their communities better places to live.
What can I do?
- Tell Your Giving Story: Take an #unselfie (tagged just like that, along with #givingtuesday) and share why you give back to your community through volunteer work. If you want to mention #CTC, that’s awesome. Even if you don’t, let us know about your post so we can share it as well.
- Donate to Show Your Support: 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. What makes this an even better idea is that your gift will go twice as far: LMCU will match it, dollar for dollar, all day!
- Share with Your Friends: Did you post an #unselfie? Did you give a financial donation? Share it! Be sure to head over to our Facebook page and share the photo’s we will be posting, too.
Thanks for all you do to give back to your community. We are so very grateful for your help.
Special thanks to Erin, owner of Faeye Photography, for donating her time and talents to us! She took the beautiful portraits you see on our social media pages today.
And thank you to Lake Michigan Credit Union for today’s gift match!
