#GivingTuesday: a day to give back
#GivingTuesday is a nation-wide call to action that began as a simple idea….We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals….Wouldn’t it be great to have a day for giving back?

#GivingTuesday is something that everyone can share. The more people who unite in these efforts, the more we will achieve.
Think of ways you can get your family and friends involved in giving this season. Adopt a child from the Angel Tree at the mall, invite a lonely neighbor to share your holiday meal, rally around a cause that touches your heart. The opportunities to do good are limitless.
#GivingTuesday will create a new narrative around the kickoff of the holiday season by celebrating how Americans can do much more with their wallets than consume.
Give the gift of giving. You can purchase a giving card from the Greater Salina Community Foundation, which allows the recipient to donate to a charity if his/her choice in Salina or anywhere in the country.
#GivingTuesday encourages us to do more and give more.
Make a commitment Tuesday, November 27th to give your time, money, or skills to help make Salina a great place to live, work and play. Whether it’s volunteering time or expertise, or writing a check to a charitable cause, together we can make an impact. What will you do?!
