Please join us on #GivingTuesday

GivingTuesday--save the dateThe Redemptorists have joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that celebrates generosity and gives individuals and organizations a special way to make a difference for good.

We hope you’ll join us!

This year’s event is set for December 1—the Tuesday following the popular shopping days known as Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Four years ago the 92nd Street Y in New York City came up with the concept of holding an annual day to focus on charitable giving rather than consumer spending, and the idea took off. Last year about 30,000 organizations in 68 countries were part of #GivingTuesday.

We hope you’ll join us in #GivingTuesday 2015 by making a gift to help the people the Redemptorists serve.

Like our founder, St. Alphonsus Liguori, Redemptorist priests and brothers live to serve the poorest and most abandoned of God’s people:

We run inner-city churches in impoverished neighborhoods, preach the Good News of the mercy and love of Jesus Christ in parish missions throughout the country, work in many of the poorest countries of the world, serve as military chaplains, minister to men and women in prison, help immigrants build new lives, and conduct more than 200 ministries that feed, clothe, and give hope to the poor.

Since 1866 we have promoted and spread devotion to Our Mother of Perpetual Help—the mother of Jesus and our mother as well.

Our #GivingTuesday theme for 2015 comes straight from Jesus’ words in Mark 14:7:

“The poor you will always have with you, and whenever you wish you can do good to them.” How about today?

How your gift can grow

When you make an online gift on #GivingTuesday, you will also have the chance to share the invitation to give via Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail with just one click.

Every time someone you have shared with also makes a gift, you’ll get an e-mail notice telling you how your initial gift has grown.

With your help, our goal is to raise at least $5,000 on #GivingTuesday.

Can we count on you?

As the day draws near, you’ll find information and updates on our Facebook page.
