Our #GivingTuesday Goal:
PEARLS is aiming to raise $10,000 in 24 hours to be able to continue our research-based curriculum and programming that helps girls break through some of the persistent effects of generational poverty, racism, teen pregnancy and low academic achievement in Milwaukee. We are so excited for #GivingTuesday so the first ten people to donate will receive a PEARLS' shirt!
What is #GivingTuesday:
PEARLS is putting effort behind the Giving Tuesday movement. This year, it takes place November 28th and it would be fantastic if you could participate in the day with us. Giving Tuesday is the largest national online fundraising day for philanthropy. Now in its fifth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
How you can raise support for PEARLS on #GivingTuesday:
• If you have given a financial gift to PEARLS, mention in a post why you support PEARLS and ask others to consider giving as well on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.
• Keep your eye on social media—re-tweet or share PEARLS’ messages on Facebook and Twitter surrounding the campaign.
