Thank you to our 2017 #GivingTuesday donors!
What is Giving Tuesday?
Celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday focuses on bringing people together around the values of giving back. It's a global movement to connect individuals and organizations to the communities they serve and empower every day.
Unlike traditional campaigns, #GivingTuesday is a reminder to us all that even the smallest gifts can make a big difference. Fueled by social media, this is an opportunity to connect and collaborate with others for the good of our community.
#GivingTuesday has become a global movement, and change starts at home! By supporting the Literacy Council of Fort Bend County, you are showing support for your friends and neighbors in their journey for a better life.
How can YOU help?
- Small gifts change lives! Donate $3, $5, $10, or more to change the life of an adult student.
- Spread awareness! Connect with your family, friends, and neighbors to discuss why literacy education is vital to our community. Adult low literacy is linked to nearly every socio-economic issue in the United States.
- Inspire action! Include the hashtag #GivingTuesday in your social media posts to encourage others to participate. We want to see your #Unselfie! Tag the @ftbendliteracy in your Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram posts.
- Donate your time! Many of our adult literacy classes are led by volunteer tutors. Commit to changing a life by leading a class each week for at least one academic semester.
- Make it fun!
