#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. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has been bringing people together around the values of service and giving back, connecting diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving. As a global movement, #GivingTuesday unites countries around the world by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.
At the Jeremiah Tree, our donors, volunteers, staff, and board all share the common goal of using our time, our talents, and our financial gifts to help those who are struggling with addiction, homelessness, and poverty by connecting them to Christ and community. We work through our Connections office, which connects those in need to resources available through churches, agencies, and government programs, and the TreeHouse men’s recovery ministry, which provides men struggling with addictions a safe environment where Christ can transform their lives. Since 2013, hundreds of lives have been impacted by our services. This year, why not celebrate the birth of Christ by giving hope to those in our community who are struggling. Your gift can change lives for generations to come.
