How are you celebrating #GivingTuesday?
Tuesday 27 November is #GivingTuesday, a global movement to celebrate and provide incentives to give. This effort harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners—charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.
Largely through social media, #GivingTuesday exists to inspire us to take collaborative action to improve our local communities and to give back in better and smarter ways to the charities that help create a better world.
Three easy ways to get involved this #GivingTuesday:
1. Donate to our Christmas Appeal
No family should be without basic needs like electricity, and watch their financial security spiral down. With your support we can reach out to families that need a helping hand and give them hope and joy this Christmas, and for many more to come.
2. Give a gift that matters this Christmas
Visit the Wesley Gift Shop and choose from a range of online charity gifts—such as a food hamper or small gifts for a family in crisis this Christmas. We’ll send a festive e-card on your behalf or you can also print the card to give in person.
3. Volunteer your time with Christmas gift wrapping
Volunteer your time at our Christmas gift wrapping stations at Books Kinokuniya and in World Square, from 1-24 December. Join all of the festive fun and help raise vital funds for Wesley Homeless Services. To volunteer contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 02 9263 5595.
