  • #GivingTuesday 2014

    Nov 12, 2014


    #GivingTuesday is a movement that inspires personal philanthropy and encourages bigger, better, and smarter charitable giving during the holiday season, showing that the world truly gives as good as it gets. The third annual #GivingTuesday will take place on December 2, 2014.

    Where did the idea come from? The retail industry has long benefited from seasonal shopping that sympolically kicks off with "Black Friday" - a day that has since inspired "Small Business Saturday" and "Cyber Monday". #GivingTuesday, then, serves as a celebratory, fully connected day to kick off the giving season, when many make their holiday and end-of-year charitable gifts. 

    Barbara Olson Center of Hope is once again participating in the #GivingTuesday movement! Through the generosity of The Coleman Foundation, any NEW donations given to the Center of Hope online on December 2, 2014 will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $15,000! Our hope is to reach out to new donors to meet this challenge!

    Thank you to everyone who helped make our last year's #GivingTuesday a success. Let's do it again this year!!! Help us spread the word by telling your family, friends and colleagues about the Center of Hope and ask them to come here to our website to make an online donation on December 2nd for double the impact! 

We want to know "Why do you give?"
These are our answers.
