Giving Tuesday – Nov. 27th
Everybody in America knows about “Black Friday.” And in recent years we’ve added another day to the regimen: “Cyber Monday.” These two events are the official “starting gun” for each year’s holiday season.
A few years ago someone took a look at the situation and came up with a better idea. Instead of launching the Christmas season with a frenzy of commercialism, what if we launched it by giving? Since then, “Giving Tuesday” has become something of a global movement. Last year people from more than 100 different countries took advantage of the opportunity. Their total gifts (all online) to charities amounted to over 300 million dollars!
Here’s how it works. On Nov. 27th (the first Tues. after Thanksgiving) anyone can donate to whatever non-profit or ministry they choose. Just go online to the Giving Tuesday website (www.givingtuesday.org) and look for global locations/participating organizations. CBA is registered as one of the options you can choose this year, so you’ll find a link to our website there. Or just go directly to our website (www.cbamissions.org) and click the “give now” button. You’ll see “Giving Tuesday” listed near the top of the page.
It’s not yet October, but before long Christmas commercials will be clamoring for your attention. Before you get caught up in planning what to buy, here’s hoping you can get caught up in something better.
