Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (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. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog of resources.
#GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides for them the collective power of a unique blend of partners – nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals – to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness.
As a global movement, #GivingTuesday unites countries around the world by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another. As part of an awesome local partnership to enhance the impact of this event, Reunion Bank of Tavares is matching all donations made between November 27th and December 31st! This means that your donation, regardless of size, will go twice as far, doing even more work to reach local families in need. In addition to the Holiday Match, Reunion Bank will also be sponsoring a new house build in Eustis!
Won’t you help and give the gift of stability to families of Lake and Sumter Counties? Your contributions are directed to the projects you care about, not our overhead, so you can know that your dollar is being used to change the life of a local family in need of safe, affordable housing.
Give today, and make a real difference this holiday season!
