What is Giving Tuesday?

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals – Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

A Community of Friends is participating this #Giving Tuesday and we have joined forces with The Center for Nonprofit Management for #Giving SoCal. Channels 2, 5, and 9 have agreed to support the campaign over Thanksgiving by sharing news stories.

FBCrowdriseJasmineOur goal is to raise $5,000 in 24 hours on #GivingTuesday to support life-changing services to our tenants. We offer basic life skills classes, budgeting, gardening, parenting, substance abuse recovery and children & family programming on site and connect our tenants to other resources within their communities.

Please join us by telling someone you know about our work, volunteering your time to assist our tenants, or by making a donation in any amount to show your commitment to our mission to end homelessness through the provision of quality permanent supportive housing for people with mental illness. You may find us at https://www.crowdrise.com/GivingSoCal or via our website or Facebook page. You can also send us a check! We thank you in advance for your support.
