‘Tis the season for sales on sales on sales…
It’s no secret that Black Friday, and increasingly Cyber Monday, have become amongst the biggest shopping days of the year.
But in the midst of all of this pressure to get – get the best deals, get the best gifts, get the best Instagram-worthy latte art after the early morning shopping rush – we’re also reminded of all that we have, and all that we are able to give.
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving, started in response to the recognized shopping events of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many people focus on their holiday and year-end giving. Since its inception in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy.
This year, the J is excited to take part in #GivingTuesday. You may know about the wide array of different programs that the J offers for all community members of all ages and backgrounds; but did you know that we’re actually a nonprofit organization that provides financial assistance for our own programs, as well as vital community services to seniors and other groups in need? We depend on donations from dedicated members and guests like you to continue to be able to provide vital services, financial aid, and programs for the community.
This year, we’ll continue our celebration of 85 years of the J in Cincinnati with special throwback gifts available for various levels of giving. Follow our Facebook page for a sneak peek and more information on how you can help support the J for the next 85 years!
