We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and is recovering from all the great food. After Thanksgiving, many of you fought the long lines and did some early Christmas shopping on Black Friday. Many more of you shopped on Small Business Saturday, which helped our local small businesses. Today, some of you are probably making purchases on Cyber Monday, hopefully on your breaks or lunch hour. This brings us to #GivingTuesday.
Throughout the month of November, we have challenged our students to give back to their local communities through many means such as food drives, and the posting of un-selfies to show their support, and more importantly, awareness to their favorite organizations. We had a contest and the un-selfie with the most likes was awarded a $25 donation in their name to their favorite organization.
#GivingTuesday is a national program that emphasizes the opportunity to give back to your favorite organization. The date is always the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. The concept is that after spending on yourself and your family, you also give back.
This will be our 2nd year participating in #GivingTuesday at Chatfield College. Last year, we had 141 participants gifting a total of $ 3,011. Most of you are going to receive requests from the organizations that you support on this day and all that we ask is that you consider Chatfield as part of your #GivingTuesday options.
How can you help us in this quest? Make your gift for #GivingTuesday on our website, mail your gift to Chatfield College or call us at 513-875-3344 X 124 to make your pledge or payment.
Every gift matters to our students. Please share this with all of your friends and family, so that we can spread the word concerning our campaign, and be sure to follow us on Facebook, as we will be making periodic updates on our progress.
