Good Morning AWOL Family!!
We Hope you are staying healthy and happy through this tumultuous time in our lives. We are all together as one, and will withstand this storm in all of our lives.
We are going to be participating in the global day of giving-#GivingTuesdayNow-on May 5th, 2020. This is an event coordinated by the great folks at Giving Tuesday in a global effort to impart support and change for our communities programs and the citizens they support during this unprecedented time.
We encourage you to participate in this global event-while following social distancing guidelines-in a variety of ways.
-You could reach out to a loved one and check on them, perhaps a video call! Reach out to your friends and neighbors and support one another through whatever means necessary-give things you may have plenty of to those who may not.
-Reach out to your favorite community organizations, and share their missions on social media, email, friends and family. Share the inspiration to their community work and purpose!
-You can choose to donate to your favorite causes or missions-it is important to always remember that YOU are the reason community programs exist-YOU are the backbone of these organizations-YOU make the impact within their organization's success.
We believe that generosity has the power to unite and heal communities in good times and bad. A global threat like COVID-19 touches every person on the planet, and it presents an opportunity to come together as a global community.
#GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 – in addition to the regularly scheduled Dec 1, 2020 #GivingTuesday – as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
Let’s come together to create a wave of generosity, citizen engagement, action from business and philanthropy, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world.
