United Way of Western Connecticut
How they are participating
This November 27th, you can be a part of a movement to emphasize the "thanks" in Thanksgiving. #GivingTuesday was created as an alternative to Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday season on a charitable note. The day’s founding partners, which include United Way Worldwide, hope to turn the Tuesday after Thanksgiving into a day in which we give thanks by giving back to the community and supporting efforts to improve the lives of those in need. United Way of Western Connecticut is proud to support #GivingTuesday. There is no greater gift than helping to make a difference in someone's life: You can Give, you can Advocate, or you can Volunteer -- any way you contribute, you will be helping to make our community stronger. Oh, and in case you were wondering: #GivingTuesday includes a hashtag in its name since it is largely being promoted on social media like Twitter and Facebook. We hope you will join us in making #GivingTuesday a success and consider a donation by visiting our website at http://www.uwwesternct.org and clicking the 'give' link!
