A Global Day for Giving Back
Undoubtedly you’ve heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the days following Thanksgiving where you can get the best deals around. But have you heard of Giving Tuesday? It is a day set aside for giving back. Whether it is with your time, talents or treasure, whatever you do will only strengthen the communities we live in.
Spread the word on social media. #UNselfie – Little actions make a big impact. The more people doing kind acts and giving back on Giving Tuesday, the more we are united in making a better us.
The Y is now…as it has always been…a place of possibility and promise for all. Unfortunately, in times when the true power of “us” is unknown to many an our bonds are fraying, we must do even more to enhance our human connections. That’s why the Y passionately focuses on strengthening communities.
Every day in Knoxville the Y supports kids, adults,seniors and families with programs that protect, teach, connect, heal, nourish and encourage. Everything we do helps empower communities and the “us” who live in them to thrive.
We can’t do it alone.
