Nov 10, 2018
This post is brought to you in partnership with SHARE Charlotte.
'Tis the season for holiday festivities, of beers shared with friends and family, and (of course) of giving back. Everyday during #GivingTuesdayCLT (November 20 - 27), SHARE Charlotte will be offering the Charlotte community a different way they can give GOOD.
#GivingTuesdayCLT is Charlotte’s local response to the global #GivingTuesday movement. Powered by SHARE Charlotte, #GivingTuesdayCLT (Nov 20-27) has inspired nearly $20 million in gifts to Charlotte nonprofits since 2014.
Here's a quick breakdown of all the daily promotions and ways for you to support your favorite local nonprofit(s):
November 20: Take A Class Tuesday
Sign up for or attend a class that is giving back to a local nonprofit this #GivingTuesdayCLT. If you're looking for ideas, Skillpop has plenty!
And if you offer any type of class (fitness, cooking, art, etc.) you could give a portion of class proceeds on any day Nov 20-27 (or all week!) to a nonprofit of your choice. Connect with that nonprofit ahead of time and they can help promote your give-back!
November 21: Wet Your Whistle Wednesday
