Giving Tuesday is for Giving Back!
The Tuesday following Thanksgiving, UCM celebrates #GivingTuesday, a day dedicated to giving back. The idea is simple -- raise money or volunteer, then spread the word by using #GivingTuesday in your social meia posts.
How can you "Be Part of the Heart" to support UCM on #GivingTuesday on Nov. 29? Here are some ideas:
- Donate a gift to the UCM Holiday Gift Room. Drop off a gift or shop online with our Amazon.com Holiday Wishlist. There's still time to organize a holiday food or gift collection drive with your group or family. Learn more
- Start your holiday shopping at the UCM Back Porch Thrift Store for unique treasures at great prices. 100% of store proceeds stay in our community to benefit people in need. Open until 6:30 pm on Nov. 29 (and every day!).
- Use igive.com when shopping online to support UCM during the holidays -- and all year long! Get set up once with your email address and a percentage of your purchases at hundreds of shopping sites will automatically benefit UCM. Get started here
- Reach into your piggy bank. A gift to UCM in a friend or family member's name is a perfect holiday gift for the people on your list who "have everything." Make a year-end gift early.
Remember to share UCM's facebook posts or re-tweet @UCMAlex to raise awareness of supporting our local community this holiday season -- that's helping too!
Thanks for being Part of the Heart of Community with UCM on #GivingTuesday!
