Today is Giving Tuesday


Today is #GivingTuesday, a campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support non-profit organizations.  Read more about it here

Last year on #GivingTuesday, NDSS donors represented 20 different states.  Endorsements from people all over the community made a huge impact on the number of donations we received and the amount of people that were “talking” about NDSS on a variety of social media channels. Lots of our celebrity ambassadors joined in too, many of whom have agreed to help us again.  Today, our goal is to raise $5,000 and encourage 10,000 individual social media users to engage with NDSS in connection with #GivingTuesday.  We can do this!

If you’d like to join us in the endorsement of NDSS and support a worldwide day of giving back, please share our posts and tweet and chat on our behalf.  Please include @NDSS and #GivingTuesday so we can track your communication. Here are some sample tweets you can use today.
