Inspired by the idea to unite people through giving, the global movement #GivingTuesday was created in 2012. Directly following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday harnesses the power of social media to connect and encourage people around the world to give back to their communities during the holiday season. Givers are invited to take action however they feel inspired to -- through donations, volunteering, advocacy, acts of kindness and more.
In honor of Operation New Hope's 20th anniversary, our goal is to raise $20,000 during this year's Giving Tuesday campaign. For the past 2 decades, Operation New Hope has worked to address poverty, crime, homelessness, property disrepair, and drug addiction in Jacksonville, Florida. Our hope is to expand support and funding for our nationally acclaimed Ready4Work reentry program, which helps returning citizens overcome the multitude of barriers faced upon release from incarceration. We realize this is a big goal, but believe that we can succeed with your help.
This Giving Tuesday, #GiveASecondChance and show you believe second chances matter! Any amount, no matter how small, will help us reach our 20th anniversary goal of $20,000.
