#GivingTuesday is almost here!

Giving TuesdayGiving Tuesday is a national day of fundraising set for the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (and after Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday). HVCS and many other charities will be using social media to ask supporters for donations to help us carry out our mission, and it ties into our overall end-of-year annual appeal.

This year, Giving Tuesday is on November 28th.

You can help by making a donation to support HVCS’ food and nutrition programs, substance abuse programs, or HIV prevention efforts.

You can also pitch in by creating and sharing Giving Tuesday content on social media.

1) Please print out this sign;
2) Hold it up, give a big smile, and snap a pic;
3) OR, use the “GT_HVCS_Teaser” image provided at right, if you don’t want to take a selfie.
4) Next, post it on your social media profile and use the hashtag #GiveHVCS (you can also include the tag #GivingTuesday). Hashtags work on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. It’s also great if you add in a sentence or two about your role at the agency.
5) Add in the link to our donation page: www.hudsonvalleycs.org/donate.
6) Or, if you’re on Facebook: ask people to visit the Hudson Valley Community Services page and use the Donate button. ***Facebook will MATCH all donations made to us via our Donate button on Nov 28th, up to $1,000 total for the agency!

Friends and family members are welcome to get in on the action too! The more the merrier—and the stronger our campaign.
