Imagine if everyone who went shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday set aside a little extra for one more gift this holiday season.
The extra gift could save a life: a holiday dinner for a hungry neighbor, safe shelter and refuge from domestic violence, a new coat for a homeless child.
That’s where #GivingTuesday comes in.
#GivingTuesday is a global holiday celebrating generosity and kindness by giving to nonprofits all around the world. This year, we’re inviting you to join the movement! You can provide a hot meal, compassionate care and a chance for life change…all for just $1.66.
Here are a few small steps that will make a world of difference:
Join the movement. Like and share UGM of Salem’s #GivingTuesday posts on Facebook and Instagram to spread the word! Shop with a mission at the Mission Store, where every purchase benefits homeless men, women and children.
Go local. If you do your holiday shopping on Amazon, be sure to check out www.smile.amazon.com and choose “Union Gospel Mission of Salem” as your charity. Amazon will donate to us every time you shop!
Give hope. For less than the cost of a cup of coffee, you can feed and care for a person in need in our city of Salem. Only $1.66 gives a meal and care for one person visiting our shelters.
This holiday season, UGM will provide more than 41,000 meals to homeless men, women and children, but we can’t do it alone.
