#GivingTuesday 2015 is here, and once again this year, WBGO is on board!
Why #GivingTuesday? There were already Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, and 92Y wanted to use the same kind of rallying point that the retail industry had used to drive sales, but direct it toward giving back. Tuesday was "available," so they grabbed it, and set about turning the idea into a reality, and creating an "opening day" for the giving season.
Last year, more than 27,000 organizations in 68 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday. Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities. We invite you to join the movement and to help get out and give this December 1.
We hope that you will consider supporting WBGO on Giving Tuesday, and to that end, our members have contributed to match $1 for every $2 pledged that day. Listener support is the most reliable funding source for the station, and any amount is welcome. PLEDGE NOW!
We also encourage you to post “unselfies” – photos of yourself doing volunteer work (for WBGO or another organization) or with messages of giving. Please feel free to post them to WBGO’s social media pages: @WBGOjazz on Facebook and @WBGO on Twitter.
And WBGO gives back too - remember to contribute new and clean used coats for children and adults, for our 8th Annual Coat Drive, starts TODAY!
