Celebrate the 2nd Annual #GivingTuesday!

text text text

#GivingTuesday blew away all expectations in its first year. Blackbaud processed over $10 million in online donations on November 27, 2012 – a 53% increase when compared to the Tuesday after Thanksgiving in 2011.

With the year-end festivities quickly approaching, it’s time to celebrate #GivingTuesday! Now in its 2nd year, this movement creates a national day of charitable giving on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving.

Where did the idea come from? The retail industry’s  “Black Friday” kicks off the holiday shopping season, and has inspired the likes of “Small Business Saturday” and “Cyber Monday.” The organizers of #GivingTuesday recognized a need to spotlight the importance of philanthropic gifts, and thus #GivingTuesday was born.

Remember to include on your holiday gift list the causes and charities that make a difference in your life. During this busy season, we hope you’ll find a moment to make a gift that will last for generations: your #GivingTuesday donation to ESLT will help save the Eastern Sierra’s vital lands forever.
