What Is #GivingTuesday?
The Little Light Project has joined #GivingTuesday, for a “First of its Kind” effort to harness the collective power of a unique blend of partners, charities, families, businesses and individuals, to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday will inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in more effective ways to the causes they support, and help create a better world.
In the spirit of #GivingTuesday, we want to give all our supporters a way to show how they will give back during this time of year. From now until #GivingTuesday, our Facebook and Twitter will be highlighting #HowIGiveBack submissions and YOU can participate!
Read below to find out how to participate in this year's #GivingTuesday and #HowIGiveBack campaigns!
The final step is the most important one! The idea of #HowIGiveBack is to get everyone thinking about the real reason for this season, giving! Often we are so caught up in the Black Fridays and Cyber Mondays that we don’t take a moment to think about what we are giving instead of what we are getting.
Take your #HowIGiveBack photo and post it on your Twitter and Facebook and tag at least 5 friends!
A great example of text to include in the post is:
In the season of giving, I am not getting caught up in Black Friday and Cyber Monday – I am celebrating #GivingTuesday by showing #HowIGiveBack. If I tagged you in this post, please go to Little Light Project #GivingTuesday and share how YOU give back this time of year!
As a non-profit we are focused on giving back all year round, and we believe our free education and healing programs/services are a great example of that! If you want to give back by helping keep our services free, you can donate by clicking on the give today button below!
"I started having flashbacks about a year ago. I always felt as if I had been sexually abused as a young child. Kiersten helped me realize that we can repress memories of traumatic events. They can resurface many years later and in very strange ways. I have greatly benefited from the free call-in sessions. Although I never participated in the conversation, nor was I expected to do so, I obtained a wealth of knowledge by listening to two experts in the field regarding child sexual abuse. I now know I am not crazy when someone or something triggers a memory. I am forever grateful to Kiersten and her team of professionals for their kindness and desire to help others. Women helping women! Thank you, Little Light Project." <3 ~~A.C.
