Update (November 29, 2017): WOW. Our fundraising goal for #GivingTuesday was $500 and with your help, we were able to bring in just over $1,600!! Our thanks to the generous late night donations in honor of Fallon Jade, Dawson Michael, Ainsley and additional contributions in honor of several children recognized earlier in the day. Our incredible and generous ACDA community more than tripled our initial goal!

One day, one mission, one big thank you. We give our thanks to those who donated to the ACDA yesterday.

Background:  It seems the holiday season begins earlier every year, but the frenzy of shopping truly launches the day after Thanksgiving, commonly known as #BlackFriday. As more and more people began to turn to online shopping, #CyberMonday emerged too. Although all this shopping is done in the name of giving gifts to loved ones, it sometimes feels like the goodwill of the holiday season fades into the background. In 2012, a few nonprofit professionals decided to do something about it and raised over $10 million in the inaugural event. But Giving Tuesday was just getting started. By 2016, the giving day raised over $177 million online.

  • What: A global day of giving
  • When: The Tuesday following Black Friday
  • Where: Everywhere. Organizations all over the world participate

The biggest giving month of the year is right around the corner. In fact, about a third of all charitable giving happens in December. Please help us successfully kick off the holiday giving season by promoting the #GivingTuesday campaign on November 28, 2017 in support of the ACDA.
