November is here! Of course, that means Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are all right around the corner.
There’s one more holiday this month, though, that you might not already be familiar with—#GivingTuesday.
#GivingTuesday is a global movement that takes place on Tuesday, Nov. 27 and is designed to promote the power of giving during the holiday season.
Amid a busy couple weeks of giving thanks with family and friends and bargain-hunting for the holidays, #GivingTuesday is an excellent opportunity to give back to the greater good by donating, volunteering or even helping raise awareness for a cause.
At Accelerate Institute, we’re incredibly proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish this year in creating high-performing urban schools. It takes incredible dedication from our transformational leaders all around the country to do so.
Our work isn’t complete, though. And while the social impact of closing the education gap is priceless, the cost of training the transformational leaders that make this happen doesn’t come cheap. The truth is, we simply can’t fulfill our mission without the support of people like you.
