Celebrate Giving Tuesday with Sheltering Arms!

Posted by Kathryn Klopp on November 28, 2015 in Volunteer

You’re invited to celebrate #GivingTuesday with us! #GivingTuesday is a global movement to harness our collective compassion for a great cause during the season of giving. #GivingTuesday celebrates giving back—whether it’s giving time, money, or just a social media shout-out.  Those who support Sheltering Arms on #GivingTuesday are directly supporting families living well below the poverty line, and giving them  something to be thankful for this holiday season, too.

There are lots of ways to celebrate #GivingTuesday with us!

#1 Be a Social Media Champion

Share this page on your facebook and twitter, and tell your networks how they can be part of #GivingTuesday with Sheltering Arms. Millions of people worldwide will use the #GivingTuesday hashtag on December 1st in support of their favorite charities, and you can join them. By sharing the link to this page, you’re expanding our reach well beyond our network, and giving hundreds more people the opportunity to be part of a global movement to make a difference  on a holiday dedicated to giving.

#2 Give a Few Dollars

It’s the season of giving! If everyone who sees this message gives at least $5, we would raise enough to support home-finding efforts for 300 New York City children in our foster care program! It’s a great time to give the gift of a family to a child who may never have shared a holiday meal with loved ones.

#3 Volunteer

You can give the gift of your time to any of our programs. Visit our Volunteer Page to get involved.
