Most of us are preparing to give thanks for our blessings on Thanksgiving. We at Language Lizard are grateful for all the work you do to promote language learning and multicultural education in the classroom and at home.
This year, we are thinking beyond Thanksgiving and the Black Friday/Cyber Monday shopping deals that follow. We are proud to be joining the many organizations around the world celebrating #GivingTuesday. We’d like to help you get involved too!
What is #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday was founded by New York’s 92nd Street Y, in partnership with the United Nations Foundation, as a global movement involving over 10,000 organizations. As their website states, “We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.”
