Mayor Vaughan, Triad Stage Proclaims Dec. 3, 2019 GivingTuesday
Greenboro, NC – October 21, 2019. Greensboro, North Carolina has proclaimed December 3, 2019, GivingTuesday – GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners—charities, families, businesses, and individuals—to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. In just seven years, GivingTuesday has radically changed how we think about generosity and showed just how much power communities everywhere have to create change.
Millions of people around the world have participated in the movement. Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina, until now, have been the only two North Carolina cities to officially recognize their city as a part of the global movement. But on Monday, Oct. 21, with solicitation and partnership from Triad Stage, Mayor Nancy Vaughan signed a proclamation making Greensboro the third city in North Carolina to join the cause.
“We at Triad Stage have always included “community” in our core values,” said Sarah Leonard, the Development Manager for Triad Stage, a downtown, non-profit theater. “We cannot wait to give back to young people in and around our community on GivingTuesday and we thank the mayor for standing behind all non-profits on this global day of giving!”
Triad Stage, currently in its 19th season, will be accepting donations from members of the community in order to sponsor free season passes for youth of the community. With a valid student ID or Valid ID under the age of 21, youth can join Triad Stage on December 3rd and receive first-come-first-serve passes.
Founded in 2012, GivingTuesday has inspired millions of people to give back and support the causes they believe in. Over $400 million was raised online in 2018 to benefit a tremendously broad range of organizations, and much more was given in volunteer hours, donations of food and clothing, and acts of kindness.
“It’s been a privilege to work with remarkable leaders all over the country and around the world building a movement around GivingTuesday,” said Asha Curran, GivingTuesday’s CEO and co-founder. “This initiative has truly been crowd-sourced by some of the smartest and most connected minds among the next generation of philanthropists and entrepreneurs.”
