GivingTuesday is a global philanthropic event that encourages everyone to do good. Whether we take time out of our day to help out a neighbor, devote our energy to a cause we care about, give some of what we have to those who have none, or even make someone smile, every positive act of generosity matters and everyone is able to participate.
This year, AllOne has partnered with 37 organizations in Northeastern Pennsylvania to boost their fundraising efforts and the United Way of Wyoming Valley is excited to be one of them! AllOne will match donations made to each of these organizations up to $1,000 on pledges made through the AllOne Giving Tuesday webpage while it is running. All pledges to be matched must be entered through the AllOne site and checks must be payable to AllOne.
The website will go live on Thanksgiving Day and run through Wednesday, December 2nd at 4PM. Bookmark this link so that when the time comes, you can make your GivingTuesday donation to the United Way of Wyoming Valley: https://allonefoundations.org/all-one-give-day/
AllOne is also giving $1,000 to the organization who raises the most total dollars, and another $1,000 to the organization who has the highest amount of donors.
If you’ve never participated in GivingTuesday, mark your calendar for December 1st and do a little good this year by making a gift to United Way of Wyoming Valley. Your generous donation will go towards Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, an early literacy initiative that provides new, age-appropriate books each month to children from their birth to age five – FREE of charge.
All families living in the Wyoming Valley with children under age 5, regardless of income, can sign up for this program. While it sounds simple, reading regularly with children during their preschool years gives them the biggest boost toward a successful education they will ever get.
With your gift, together we can enact real, positive change in our community.
