This past week we celebrated Thanksgiving prompting us to reflect on all the good works Rotary has done throughout the year.    This Tuesday, November 28 is Giving Tuesday.  Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving that takes place on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. It was created to encourage people to donate to charitable organizations and causes they care about. Rotary International has embraced the concept of Giving Tuesday and encourages the use of this day as a fundraising opportunity for clubs and for The Rotary Foundation. Since 2017, Rotary has also used Giving Tuesday to reach out directly to prospective and current donors, and the campaign has grown each year.
It is important that we all support this online giving opportunity since many clubs rely on grants provided by the Rotary International Foundation to Create the Hope in the World in their communities and throughout the world. I encourage you to make a donation and to encourage your friends on social media to consider giving a gift to the Rotary International Foundation Annual Fund.  All donations will help us provide all the support needed to make a difference in the world.
