Support PAALS on #GivingTuesday
What is #GivingTuesday
We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. And, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, November 28, 2017 charities, families, businesses, community centers and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more.Then tell everyone you can on social media about how you are giving on #GivingTuesday. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.
