Why I’m Giving on Giving Tuesday

Marisa and her family participated in our Family Creative Learning Workshops this past October. Here’s why she’s giving on Giving Tuesday:

#GivingTuesday
So there’s Black Friday & Cyber Monday but today is something I feel represents what this time of year really means: Giving. Whether it’s your time, your love, or your support to a great cause.
In this case I feel we can accomplish all 3 by donating to a cause that helps our children; Clubhouse 253. This place has been a great asset to our community. Offering free tutoring during the week & Girls Day on Saturdays where they learn all about computers & technology that will help them succeed in the future. There’s also ongoing workshops that gets the whole family involved. Not to mention meals during these events!
All these services are free. The people who run this volunteer so much of their time & energy to help the next generation. A lot of whom went to the clubhouse as kids themselves. It would be great if we could help them continue this amazing program that has done so much for so many.
You can give to them by clicking the donate button on their website.”http://bit.ly/1ehNVdx

On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.”
