We are proud to share the news with you: The Doe Fund is participating in a national movement called #GivingTuesday!

Now in its second year, #GivingTuesday celebrates philanthropy and community under the premise that since we have a day for giving thanks and two for getting deals, it’s time to have a day for giving back.  This year, we invite you to join The Doe Fund on Tuesday, December 3rd to celebrate a day of giving!

Publicly endorsed by the White House, Bill Gates, the Clinton Foundation, Mayor Bloomberg, and socially-conscious celebrities, #GivingTuesday harnesses the power of social media to create a national effort synonymous with the act of giving during the holiday season.

Here’s what you can do to help make this initiative a success:

 1) Mention @TheDoeFund and #GivingTuesday on twitter. You could even include a link directly to our online donation page (found here) or retweet @TheDoeFund’s own #GivingTuesday messages.

2) Tag us in your status updates on Facebook by typing @TheDoeFund! Include #GivingTuesday and let your friends know why you support the “men in blue.” You can also share The Doe Fund’s Facebook posts and include a personal message.

3) Email your friends and family and let them know you support The Doe Fund. With the gift-buying season officially underway, encourage your loved ones to give the gift of opportunity to the “men in blue”!

4) Share your support for The Doe Fund on a personal blog, on a charitable board on Pinterest, or through photos of the “men in blue” on Instagram.

#GivingTuesday is about ordinary people coming together to doing extraordinary things, so join us in celebrating a day just for giving back!
