December 2, 2014 marks the third celebration of Giving Tuesday, a day that promotes a charitable response to the frenzied shopping days that follow Thanksgiving.
Conceived by New York’s 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation along with other partners, Giving Tuesday encourages people to celebrate generosity and give back by donating to and volunteering for their favorite nonprofit organizations. In 2012, the campaign raised nearly $10 million for US charities. In 2013, that number rose to over $19 million. Giving Tuesday continues to expand its reach around the globe, with over two dozen countries participating in 2014.
Mental illness affects everyone, and ranks among the leading causes of disability in the world. Since opening, Lindner Center of HOPE has served more than 23,000 individuals from 48 states and seven countries. Support is needed to continue to provide Hope to those struggling with mental illness and addiction. Giving Tuesday is a great time to show support, no matter how big or how small.
“For it is in giving that we receive”- St. Francis of Assisi
