Welcome the Stranger this Giving Tuesday

Tuesday, November 24, 2015

A global movement that will unite the world for a good cause will take place the Tuesday after Thanksgiving Day. On #GivingTuesday, December 1st, people and communities around the world will come together for one common purpose: to give.

La Posada has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. It sets itself apart from the consumerism hype of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

You can become part of this online giving trend by encouraging people to use the Tuesday after Thanksgiving to make a difference in the life of others.

Here’s how you can join the movement from the convenience of your home.

First: Make a donation

Visit www.lppshelterl.org/waystogive to learn about our giving opportunities and how to make an online donation.

Second: Tell others about La Posada

On Giving Tuesday (December 1), you may see friends and family posting statuses on social media sites with the #GivingTuesday hashtag. These statuses will be promoting a particular charity, encouraging others to donate time or money to their choice of charity.

Head over to your Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites and tell everyone you know about La Posada using the #GivingTuesday hashtag.

You can ask them to donate, volunteer, or simply raise awareness of our cause.

Sample status:

“Today is #GivingTuesday! If you are looking for a great organization to donate to today, make sure to consider La Posada. Find out more about them or donate at lppshelterl.org/waystogive.”

It’s that simple. Spread the word!

If you have any questions, contact Carlos Restrepo at 314.209.9181 or via email at crestrepo@lpp-room.org.

Thank you for keeping the homeless in our community in your thoughts and prayers during this season.
