What is Giving Tuesday?
GivingTuesday is a global day of generosity that will take place on December 1, 2020.
Why was Giving Tuesday Created?
GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
How can you get involved in Giving Tuesday?
People can show their generosity in a variety of ways during GivingTuesday—whether it’s helping a neighbor, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, or giving to causes, every act of generosity counts.
Supporting Choice Adoptions
When you support Choice Adoptions with a financial gift you are supporting women who are unexpectedly pregnant and need someone to talk to about their pregnancy and adoption options. By supporting women who are pregnant and need an ally you are helping to keep children out of the foster care system.
When parents are unable to care for their children, their child(ren) may be at risk of entering foster care. The reasons they're unable to parent are vast, but may include: addiction, homelessness, mental health issues, domestic violence, incarceration or some very unpredictable circumstances. When parents are unable to find stability after a significant time, parental rights are in danger of becoming terminated and these children can remain in the foster care system for a significant amount of their childhood.
