Together We Give: Giving Tuesday 2022

Together We Give: Giving Tuesday 2022

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Click here to learn more about this global day of giving.

Giving Tuesday is November 29, 2022, and quickly approaching! Our goal is to raise $20,000 to help feed children in Louisville on the weekends.

This year’s Giving Tuesday is all about the kids! We will share handwritten notes from children — in their own words — about the impact of Blessings in a Backpack in their lives.

Connect with us on social media to read the notes and share our posts on Giving Tuesday.
