Spend with a Purpose on #GivingTuesday

Pledge to help build girls of courage, confidence, and character

Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines has joined #GivingTuesday, a first of its kind effort that will inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support, and help create a better world.

And here at Girl Scouts, improving our world is an essential part of our mission.  Every day, girls are building courage, confidence and character so they can give back and make the world a better place. By participating in Girl Scouting, girls learn valuable life and leadership skills that serve them as they become thoughtful and engaged citizens in their communities and throughout their lives.

“At Girl Scouts we know that when given the opportunity, girls truly make a difference,” said Lisa Jones, chief executive officer at Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines.  “We are excited to join this world-wide celebration of generosity and giving.  By investing in Girl Scouts this Giving Tuesday, supporters will help make Girl Scouting possible for more girls so they can change our world.”

Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday will take place on Tuesday, December 2, 2014.  Harness the power of social media, #GivingTuesday will to create a national moment around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping.

Led by the 92nd Street Y (92Y), a group of friends and partners who saw an opportunity to channel the generous spirit of the holiday season, #GivingTuesday celebrates the great American tradition of giving. With the help of the United Nations Foundation and other founding partners, more than 10,000 organizations have joined the movement and are providing creative ways people can embrace #GivingTuesday and collaborate in their giving efforts to create more meaningful results.
