In this time of the year that we embrace gift giving and family time it is also very important to help our community to fight hunger and feed hope to those in need. I am honored to be Second Harvest #GivingTuesday social media ambassador and would love for you to join our efforts by joining the Thunderclap before December 3. We need 100 supporters in order to raise awareness about this program that benefits Central Florida Families in need, by joining the Thunderclap you are contributing with a tweet or a Facebook message that will appear on your twitter or Facebook stream on December 3. It is an easy way to help Second Harvest on their efforts to make this holiday season better for our Orlando community.
But what is #GivingTuesday, this program is celebrating it’s second year and it is a movement created to celebrate national day of giving and will be held on December 3, 2013. In the same way that retail stores take part in Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Second Harvest is asking the giving community to come together for #GivingTuesday to help the elderly, the children and the families that need our help.
#Giving Tuesday gives us the opportunity to bring joy and make this holiday time even more special because we all together can help those in need. This year Second Harvest Food Bank is teaming up with WESH 2 News’ Share Your Christmas on #GivingTuesday to help families, seniors and kids in our community. The #GivingTuesday challenge is to raise $10,000 which is equivalent to 40,000 meals for our neighbors in need.
On Tuesday, December 3rd, at midnight a donate button will appear on the #GivingTuesday page: http://bit.ly/mealsDec3. We know that with your help we can encourage our Central Florida community to raise $10,000 online, which will provide 40,000 meals locally. A donation in any amount makes such an incredible difference to our neighbors in need. Please join our efforts either with a donation on December 3 on #GivingTuesday or participating in the Thunderclap today to help us spread the word, you can fight hunger and feed hope!
