Giving Tuesday is a global day of generosity that takes place the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (November 30, 2021). Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good, a day to collaborate and celebrate generosity.
NJAEYC joins the Giving Tuesday team to encourage all of our members to participate in our version of GivingTuesday: “Each One, Reach One”. NJAEYC encourages our early childhood community to brainstorm with your colleagues and staff to choose and organize an activity or task that involves your staff, children and their families that celebrates giving. It can be a simple idea: whether it’s making someone smile, helping someone out, showing up for an issue or people you care about, or giving some of what you have to those who need help. Every act of kindness counts and everyone has something to give. Please join the movement!
Here are some ideas to help you launch your giving campaign: 1) Share kindness with an organization in your community or with your neighbors; 2) Give your voices to a cause that matters to you, your staff, your children and their families; and, 3) Discover a community drive or event to join others.
NJAEYC looks forward to seeing your ideas and how you are celebrating this day of giving to others!
