What is #GivingTuesday? What does it have to do with us at All Saints Academy?
#GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back, especially after the commercialism and consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It is a time to think about giving rather than receiving.
#GivingTuesday happens the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and is an opportunity for communities, churches, families and individuals globally to come together and to simply celebrate generosity for 24 hours.
This year, Bishop Walkowiak is encouraging Catholics to participate by supporting parishes, schools and ministries right here in West Michigan. You are being asked to #GiveASAGR on #GivingTuesday.
Here are ways you can participate on Tuesday, December 3:
- Donate to our All Saints Academy teachers by following this link. https://asagr.ejoinme.org/teachers Your donations will have a profound impact right in the ASA classrooms. Teachers are in need of many items such as learning tools, hands on manipulatives, and enhancing technology!
- Post a status or photo on your social media accounts explaining why you support giving within our diocese and at All Saints Academy. Use the hashtags #GiveASAGR and #GivingTuesday.
- Share the newly released video #WeAREOne to highlight one of our school’s root beliefs. We Are One
- Take and post a photo of yourself or your family members sharing what #GiveASAGR means to you. Use the hashtags #GiveASAGR and #GivingTuesday.
During this Thanksgiving season, it is appropriate for us who have given so much to be a part of and to support this worldwide effort. Join with us, other members of our parishes and Catholics around the country by celebrating generosity right here at home.
Special thanks to Greg Ghering for working with us to produce these videos!
