#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving! One of the best ways to get involved is in your own community either by volunteering or donating to a local charity!
We have a lot to be thankful for and want to share that with our followers & supporters! We are also looking forward to engaging with the community and sharing #UNselfie’s from our staff, Board of Directors, Volunteers, Partners, Sponsors & Donors over the next week on our Facebook, Instagram & Twitter pages!
Here are a few ways you can participate and get involved with Ride for Reading for #GivingTuesday:
