Celebrate #GivingTuesday | December 3, 2013

Spend with a purpose. You can give the gift of education today by simply clicking the "donate" button below.

Friends of Literacy has joined #GivingTuesday, a first of its kind effort that will harness the collective power of a unique blend of partners -- charities, families, businesses and individuals -- to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday 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. Taking place December 3, 2013 -- the Tuesday after Thanksgiving -- #GivingTuesday will harness the power of social media 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.
