When is GivingTuesday?
December 3, 2019
What is GivingTuesday?
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world.
GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
GivingTuesday strives to build a world in which the catalytic power of generosity is at the heart of the society we build together, unlocking dignity, opportunity, and equity around the globe.
GivingTuesday’s global network collaborates year-round to inspire generosity around the world, with a common mission to build a world where generosity is part of everyday life
Why Give to Pine Brook Camp?
Many children and teens in western Massachusetts come from low-income communities and cannot afford to attend overnight summer camp and experience the opportunities and benefits that our natural setting can provide. Offering camper scholarships for these children and teens will allow them to socialize in the summer months with friends, learn about nature, enjoy the outdoors and receive value and faith-based teachings to enable them to become well-rounded individuals. Pine Brook Camp is seeking $10,500 to fund 30 scholarships for three weeks of overnight camp. The scholarships provided will allow students to attend one week of camp. Students will be given the opportunity to explore and develop in a camp environment that provides a loving, caring and nurturing community where they can be encouraged and learn healthy ways of communicating and dealing with life through values and faith. They will develop relationships and a sense of team with their peers and be exposed to adults that can become healthy role-models for them into the future.
