On Tuesday, December 3, 2013, LitWorld will celebrate our first #GivingTuesday, a social media campaign dedicated to giving that is becoming as universally recognized as “Black Friday,” “Small Business Saturday,” and “CyberMonday." #Giving Tuesday is a movement that celebrates and encourages the idea of giving back, and practicing better and smarter giving during the holiday season.
LitWorld's #GivingTuesday campaign is centered around our LitCamp program. On December 3rd our goal is to raise enough money to send 500 children to LitCamp. It only takes $34.92 to send a child to LitCamp for one week, and it only takes one week to boost literacy skills while creating joyful, everlasting memories founded on the magic of story and the power of a supportive literacy culture. These memories build resilience and hope, and show children what transformational literacy looks and feels like, inspiring them to use their own stories to change the outcome of their future.
Starting today, share any of the sample social media posts below to spread the word to your family and friends. Together we can make this #GivingTuesday dream come true!
