Millions of people around the world participate in #GivingTuesday every year by donating to their favorite nonprofits. This annual day of giving falls on November 27th, following Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
This year, the team here at Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco hopes you will join us in sharing the significance of having a home and raising $30,000 for the 34 new Habitat homes that begin construction this year.
Here are three ways you can get involved leading up to #GivingTuesday:
1. Start a Facebook fundraising page
Facebook will match the first $7 million raised on their website on #GivingTuesday – and we need your help to make the most of this opportunity! Starting a Facebook fundraising page takes two minutes. It’s the best way, not to mention a fun way, to get your community involved in building and repairing homes for local families in need.
Start your fundraising page, share a personal Habitat memory or touching moment, and invite your friends to pitch in to help. Every gift matters to help meet our $30,000 goal!
2. Spread the word on social media
Your voice can make a difference. By sharing about Habitat’s goal this #GivingTuesday, you can give your friends and family a window into a cause you care about: housing in the Bay Area. Share this post, a video of a Habitat homeowner, or even your own Habitat stories and experiences!
Be sure to tag us using @HabitatGSF and #GivingTuesday. Follow us on Twitter. Like us on Facebook. Join our LinkedIn group. Send an email. Make a phone call. You, our Habitat advocates, have the strongest voice in spreading the word and raising awareness.
3. Sign up to volunteer
Your time is a valuable gift that makes a difference on #GivingTuesday. Sign up to volunteer at Habitat’s office on Tuesday, November 27th when we’ll have snacks, refreshments, and an enthusiastic team of staff pitching in to make phone calls to get the word out about #GivingTuesday.
Join us for your lunch break or in the evening, and help spread the word about this important day of giving back.
And of course, we must toss in a fourth option: Please make a generous gift to help more of your neighbors finally have a forever home and access to all the opportunity it unlocks!
