We’re familiar with “Black Friday” – the day of sales and shopping and spending money galore. Then comes “Small Business Saturday”, where community members are encouraged to support local small businesses. Following that is “Cyber Monday” where sales can be found all over the internet. After three long days of spending money and finding sales to benefit yourself, friends, and family – we invite you to give.
We invite you to celebrate “Giving Tuesday” – a day to donate. Transition yourself from a day of thanks into the holiday spirit by making a difference. Put “Giving Tuesday” in your mind, and while you do so, consider donating to Girl Scouts of Central California South.
When a girl joins Girl Scouts, she does more than sell cookies. She gains outdoor skills, makes friends, explores engineering and science fields, and builds confidence. She learns money management, networking skills, business ethics, and the importance of goal setting – all before the first grade.
Our hope is to give every girl the opportunity to be a Girl Scout regardless of her economic background. For only $20, a girl can begin her Girl Scouting journey. In our local footprint, approximately 5,000 Girl Scouts receive financial assistance, opening them up to opportunities they may otherwise not have.
So celebrate Giving Tuesday with us on Tuesday, December 2, 2015 by donating $20 and starting a girl’s journey. For just $20, she will become a girl of courage, confidence, and character who will make the world a better place. Donate today: www.girlscoutsccs.org/donate
