What is #GivingTuesday?

givingtuesday

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, widely recognized by nonprofits to kick off the charitable season.

We are using #GivingTuesday to kick off our year-end campaign to raise $10,000 to provide decent and affordable housing for two Macomb County families in need. They would like to be moved into their homes for Christmas and we need your help!

With your gift, we can pay for closing costs, assist with move-in ready tool kits, and put food in the families’ pantries.

If that isn’t enough, take a look at this heart-warming thank you we received from a 13-year-old boy from one of our homeowners:

It reads: “I am thankful for this home because I am closer to my friends, and the home is more comfortable than our apartment. I am also thankful for this because now I get to have a dog.”
