It’s that time of year again! When Walmart and Target are setting up their Christmas decorations and everyone forgets about Thanksgiving. Halloween seems to be getting closer and closer to Christmas with nothing to stop it. Except you! And your power to give!
We are running our 4th annual Giving Tuesday campaign! Each year we have been using this terrific day to focus on giving. In a time where it is buy buy buy! This year Giving Tuesday falls on November 28th. Giving Tuesday gives us a chance to take a breath, focus our time and energy on what really matters. Each other.
Each year our campaign is directed towards allowing the youth on the Reservation to travel and explore the world. The past two years, we have raised around $10,000. My goal this year is to raise at least $1,000. I have witnessed first hand how incredible our Global Explorers program has been for these kids and teens. They have been able to see the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean for the first time, and although I advises not to, they drank the sea water to see if it really is salty. They have trekked through the northern Boundary Waters. They have flown for the first time!
if you’re like me, and want to have that tingly feeling of giving in this commercialized, Christmas on steroids season. Then give to my page. Give to my youth. They deserve it!
