"There's a day for giving thanks. Now there's a day for giving back." Those are words from #GivingTuesday signs created to celebrate the Tuesday after Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
According to the official mission, "#GivingTuesday™ is 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 nonprofit organizations."
For us at the Birmingham Public Library, #GivingTuesday will allow our supporters an opportunity to grant wishes on our Library WishList.
So far, several of the items have been donated completely and we truly appreciate this good will. We've included many items on our WishList which fall outside the scope of our budget. Your contributions will help us continue to fulfill our mission statement, which is to provide the highest quality library service to our citizens for life long learning, cultural enrichment and enjoyment.
Also, if you donate between now and the end of the day on #GivingTuesday, we will match your contribution 100%!

Thank you for your support! We could not be the institution we are without your help! Have a great #GivingTuesday!!!
