Trees, Water & People (TWP) is part of the inaugural #GivingTuesday, a nationwide movement that harnesses the power of a unique blend of partners—charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. #GivingTuesday has already inspired over 1,400 organizations and people in all 50 U.S. states and around the world to take collaborative action. Each aims to improve their local communities and give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support and help create a better world. Scheduled for November 27, 2012 – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – and the Day after the famed “Black Friday and “Cyber Monday” shopping days, #GivingTuesday will harness the power of social media to create an opening day for giving.
TWP joined the #GivingTuesday movement to bring awareness to their community-based development projects and to encourage people to give back during this holiday season. For this inaugural #GivingTuesday, TWP will be raising funds for reforestation efforts in northern Haiti, an area that has been ravaged by deforestation. Every donation to the campaign will be matched dollar for dollar until TWP reaches their fundraising goal. To make a donation to this campaign on #GivingTuesday, November 27th, you can visit www.treeswaterpeople.org/10000trees.
