It’s finally here! Today, we are launching our second #GivingTuesday campaign. Thanks to a generous friend, the first $5,000 we raise on November 28th will be matched dollar for dollar.
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving and a great way to get involved with your favorite charities. What started back in 2012 with a handful of nonprofits has grown into a global movement that has reached 98 countries around the world and raised $177 million in online donations.
Our goal is to raise at least $10,000 on #GivingTuesday to help Bring Art Back to 100 Brownsville public school students without art or music teachers of any kind. Thanks to a friend, the first $5,000 raised between right now and 11:59pmon #GivingTuesday will be matched 1:1, making your $50 gift equal to $100, and our collective $5,000 equal to $10,000.
Last year on #GivingTuesday, we raised $4,000 with amazing supporters like you to fund one of our Murals programs at a Lower East Side middle school. Those funds were later matched 2:1, and our students used the proceeds to complete seven murals in their schoolyard with assistance from artist legends like Toofly and Claw.
Thanks for being part of the mission to create hope and opportunity through arts and mentoring in public schools.
