Tuesday, November 28th marks the fifth year of Giving Day, also known as Giving Tuesday. The purpose behind Giving Day/Giving Tuesday is to inspire personal philanthropy and to encourgage some form of charitable giving: be it time or money or both during the holiday season.

 

Charlotte is observing its fourth year of Giving Tuesday participation. Last year $7.2 million was raised in the Charlotte, North Carolina area on Giving Tuesday. How wonderful would it be if Charlotte raised even more money in 2017?

 

 

 

 

 

Great Ways You Can "Give" In The Charlotte Metro Area:

 

  • Assistance League of CharlotteAssistance League of Charlotte: sponsors philanthropic programs which feed, cloth, mentor, educate children and families in Mecklenburg County. Financial donations are very much appreciated, however the Assistance League would also be delighted for donations to its AL Thrift Shop of clothing, shoes, household items, electronics, linenes, furniture, books, toys. And you can also volunteer to help out in the AL Thrift Shop.



  • Carolina Refugee Resettlement AgencysCarolina Refugee Resettlement Agency: provides help to refugees who've escaped religious and political persecution. Since 1996 more than 3,000 refugees from over 40 countries have been helped by this agency. This agency helps refugees with housing, schooling, jobs, and more. On the Agency's wish list: financial donations, beds, mattresses, linens, furniture, dishes, flatware, pots and pans, car seats, disposable diapers, toiletries, cleaning supplies, winter coats. Volunteers to drive people to medical and social services appointments are needed; as are volunteers to help set up apartments. Check out the Carolina Refugee Resettlement Agency Facebook page.



  • Council For Children's RightsCouncil For Children's Rights: the largest child advocacy organization in the Southeast with some 30 attorneys on staff. The Council needs volunteer attorneys and custody advocates to assist with custody cases. Financial donations are what the Council, as well. Check out the Council For Children's Right's Facebook page.



  • Dress For Success in CharlotteDress For Success: (one of my personal favorites as a former corporate executive)--helps more than 900 Charlotte area women each year to find jobs, sponsors career preparation and retention programs, as well as provides appropriate clothing for the work world. Their needs require clothing appropriate for interviews and office work, office supplies, and of course financial contributions. They'll take any and all volunteer help you can provide in their programs. Check out the Facebook Page for Dress For Success. 


  • Ronald McDonald House Of Charlotte: provides housing for the families of children who are being treated in Charlotte area medical facilities. Ronald McDonald House needs monetary contributions, gift card to local grocery stores, canned meals, toiletries, paper towels. Or you can help out at the House with evening meals. The Ronald McDonald house also has a wonderful "Adopt A Room" program worth checking out.

And don't forget about the Red Cross Blood Drives at the various YMCA's around the Charlotte area? Did you know there is typically a huge decline in blood donations during the holiday season? The goal is to collect 500 pints of blood at #GivingTuesdayCLT Blood Drives, potentially saving the lives of up to 1,500 people.

There are more than 230 Charlotte area non-profit organizations looking for your assistance, including The Humane Socierty of Charlotte, Gift of Adoption/Carolinas, Operation HomeFront, and so many more.

Hello Nina: Our office, in fact our company, is strongly supportive of local charities and always pushing for contributions. I tend to do the opposite and make donations in the spring, when I have more money leftover after taxes, LOL.

However, you have put together an impressive list of worthwhile charities in Charlotte that I'm sure people will appreciate. This must have been rather time consuming for you.

That's a good amount of giving in one day. Charlene and I evaluate our giving at the end of the year to see how much more we can give. Top of the list is always MD Anderson for me.

Joe Pryor ~ hi Joe... raising over $7 million in a city the size of Charlotte is amazing... the city itself has only just over 1 million residents and the metro area is under 2 million.

Hi Nina Hollander, I hope many will see your post and consider giving. I know some don't like to be asked for donations but if everyone felt the same, can you just imagine what our country would be like? I am so happy Charlotte raised $7 million dollars, it is huge for a city that size. Hope to see a larger amount this year. Thank you for all you do to raise awareness.

Nina this is the first time I have heard of a "Giving Tuesday".  I think it is a great idea and which we did the same around here.

George Souto ~ good morning, George... Giving Tuesday is a global effort... I would think some place near you is coordinating a local effort. But if not, their website provides information on how you can do it for your community.

Paul S. Henderson, CRS, REALTOR®, ~ good morning, Paul... I do, as well. But as you know, many people don't think about giving all year long, so this is a great way to "remind" them. I really wonder if that $7+ million that was raised through Giving Tuesday last year would have been raised to that extent without this campaign.
