Give to the Library WishList on #GivingTuesday!
On Tuesday, November 27, 2012, BPL will join a nationwide movement celebrating a new day dedicated to giving. Charities, families, businesses, community centers, students, retailers, and more will come together to create #GivingTuesday—a new movement to celebrate giving and encourage more, better, and smarter giving during the holiday season.
Now is your chance to give to BPL through Library WishList! Our goal is to raise $6,000 this holiday season and fulfill the wishes of BPL’s 19 libraries! Click the logo below to see BPL's WishList.
More about #GivingTuesday...
#GivingTuesday is a movement to celebrate and provide incentives to give. It will culminate with a national day of giving on November 27, 2012. This first-of-its-kind effort harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners—charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. #GivingTuesday will inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they celebrate and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday will harness the power of social media to create a national moment around the holidays that is dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are synonymous with holiday shopping.
