#GivingTuesday Has Arrived!
It’s that time again! Giving Tuesday is here and we’re PUMPED. Hope you are, too!
The Lighthouse has set a goal of raising $5,000 before midnight tonight – pretty ambitious, but that’s how much we believe in both in our mission and in our dedicated supporter base.
One of the coolest things about Giving Tuesday is the amount of corporate sponsors it has inspired to participate and help incentivize giving to nonprofits – like the Lighthouse – who work to make our communities safer, healthier, and overall better places to live. Gas South and Arby’s, for example, will give away thousands of dollars today to nonprofits around the state of Georgia, while Work for Good is holding nine hourly contests for $1,000 each.
And, in some cases, what counts is the number of unique donors in a given time period. That means – you guessed it! – a bunch of $25 donations could easily turn into more than $1,000. That’s pretty awesome!
We’re so excited to share today with you. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter today to follow our progress. Thank you, as always, for supporting the Lighthouse!
