Black Friday and Cyber Monday provide consumers with two days of holiday deals. #GivingTuesday, November 28, is a day for us to give back to charities and causes that are important to us.
Help deliver hope – it's easy
There are endless ways to participate in #GivingTuesday. Some people may choose to help stock a local food shelf or volunteer at a senior center. Others may prefer making a monetary donation to an organization that helps feed or shelter those in need – across town or around the world. Here are three to consider:
Amplify your giving
Help us reach our $3 million match goal
If you would like to help us reach our $3 million goal to provide disaster relief to hurricane victims along the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic and Caribbean, simply go to our hurricane disaster relief page. There, you can donate online to select national and regional disaster response charities. And when you do, Thrivent will match your personal donations, doubling the impact.
You can also help those affected this year by raging wildfires in the west. The need for disaster relief is still significant for those whose homes, livelihood and communities were impacted. Donate online to the featured organizations and Thrivent will match personal donations up to $500,000 or 12/31/17, whichever comes first.
Giving back together
As a Thrivent member, you can support the life-changing work of any of the organizations listed by applying to lead a Thrivent Action Team. And eligible Thrivent members can direct Choice Dollars® to an enrolled organization of your choice.
#GivingTuesday marks the opening day of the giving season and is a reminder of the "reason for the season." Every act of generosity counts, and each means even more when we give together.
