BENEFITING: GREATER SAN DIEGO AFTER-SCHOOL ALL- STARS
EVENT DATE: Dec 02, 2014
#GivingTuesday™ (#GT) is a movement to create a national day of giving to kick off the giving season added to the calendar on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. In the same way that retail stores take part in Black Friday, we want the giving community to come together for #GivingTuesday. #GivingTuesday™ is a campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support non-profit organizations.
FOX Sports San Diego is hosting the Season of Giving to support After-School All-Stars .This is where you come in! We are asking everyone to commit to being #UNselfie this holiday season, by giving back to the children we serve. Now, here is your opportunity to give back on #GivingTuesday.
We are a non-profit organization, so all contribution is fully tax deductible.
Each year After-School All-Stars continues to advance its mission to provide free-of-charge, comprehensive out-of-school programs to inner-city and homeless kids that keep them safe and help them achieve in school and in life. The after school programs are built upon three pillars: Academic Support, Meaningful Enrichment Activities, and Health and Fitness, and are designed using the cornerstones of quality youth programming: safety, youth-adult relationships, student voice and choice, skill building, community and family engagement, and strong school partnerships.
Tuesday, December 2nd is National #GivingTuesday and we need your help! Mayor Kevin Faulconer has declared December 2nd #GivingTuesday and will be presenting us with a proclamation for the event.
The goal of After-School All-Stars is to continue to make a difference in the lives of San Diego’s youth. With the help of gifts from supporters like you, we will continue to help San Diego’s youth prosper.
