GivingTuesday 2022 will take place on November 29 after the Thanksgiving weekend. It’s a great opportunity to donate to local charities and nonprofits that you care about. It can be a cash donation or the organization may need help from volunteers – it’s up to you!
HISTORY OF GIVINGTUESDAY — GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. GivingTuesday was born and incubated at the 92nd Street Y and its Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact in New York City. GivingTuesday is now an independent nonprofit and a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
One of the local nonprofit organizations in need of volunteers is LASER – Large Animal Shelters & Emergency Readiness. Here’s a press release that explains their mission.
LARGE ANIMAL SHELTERS & EMERGENCY READINESS (LASER)
Serving individuals, families and households in Yavapai County
Large Animal Shelters and Emergency Readiness – LASER – is a 501(c)3 nonprofit working with Yavapai County Emergency Management to provide shelter for your barn animals during evacuations at no cost to you.
November 29th is Giving Tuesday, a day when the whole world comes together to give back through acts of kindness and gifts of time, talent or treasure. Consider donating some of your time to LASER as a volunteer. With different levels of involvement available, you can choose how to help your community be prepared for disasters.
Everyone has something to give and every act of generosity counts. LASER is empowered entirely by our volunteers and donations. If you are interested in volunteering or donating to LASER, please visit the website at www.LaserShelter.org.
We will add more local nonprofits here during the month as we get closer to November 29 and Giving Tuesday. Do you work with a Yavapai County nonprofit organization that is taking part in Giving Tuesday? Please let us know by sending an email to email@example.com.
