Today is Giving Tuesday! A new national day dedicated to giving and volunteering, today is all about recognizing the value of giving and the difference we can all make by reaching out to help others.
Show your support today and join the Giving Tuesday movement:
We've been sharing messages from our donors and volunteers, who generously give back to ArtStarts in Schools.
Sharon contributes to ArtStarts in many ways: she volunteers here and has also donated partial proceeds from the sale of her own artwork. Sharon's answer to the question, Why do you give? is short but powerful:
"I give because I CAN."
Terri Anne works at ArtStarts and also shows her support by contributing an annual monetary donation. She explains why she chooses to support the organization in this way:
"I give back because I believe we keep what we have by giving it away... and I believe in ArtStarts!"
Nargis is another of our wonderful volunteers. Her message speaks to her drive to take action to better the world around her:
"I give back because I want to be an engaged citizen in building the creative community that I want."
As you can see, there are many reasons to motivate someone to give. What's your motivation?
How will you celebrate the spirit of giving today?
