Giving Tuesday 2020
A Global Generosity Movement
December 1, 2020
What is Giving Tuesday?
Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 under a simple premise: to encourage people to do good. It has now grown into a global movement that inspires millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
How You Can Get Involved for Giving Tuesday:
Give Time: Volunteering with Habitat has a direct impact on the lives of the individuals and families we serve – whether it’s on the job site or at the ReStore. We open our door to everyone and appreciate the countless hours our community has donated to our vision of living in a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
- Volunteering at the ReStore includes duties such as assisting customers, accepting, cleaning and pricing donations, organizing items on the sales floor, and assisting staff with donation pick-ups.
- Volunteering at the job site includes duties at every stage of construction – from framing, to insulation, to sheeting, flooring, and much more. Our progress moves quickly so every week is different!
- To inquire about what volunteer opportunities you may be interested in, email our Volunteer Coordinator, Hope, at firstname.lastname@example.org or give her a call at 406-204-7313.
Give Voice: Our Facebook and Instagram accounts regularly post messages advocating for affordable housing and bringing awareness to the housing crisis our state faces. In order to increase the audience our message reaches, we would be thrilled if you liked and followed our pages! Feel free to share our posts and use the hashtag #TogetherWeBuild.
Give Dollars: A gift of any amount is always greatly appreciated and put to necessary use by building affordable and energy-efficient homes. A gift to Helena Habitat helps to continue bringing affordable housing to Helena residents. Helena Habitat strongly believes that every man, woman, and child deserves to have safe, decent, and affordable shelter. With your generosity, we are dedicated to making that belief a reality in Helena. Donate Here.
Give Goods: The Helena Habitat ReStore is accepting donations throughout the week. You can drop off your gently used goods such as construction supplies, paint, home furnishings, furniture, landscaping supplies, and much more Wednesday-Saturday from 10am-5pm. We are located at 1531 National Avenue, right next to Lewis and Clark Brewery. If you have any questions, feel free to call us at 406-457-0444.
Share Why You Give: When we share our generosity with others, it can inspire them to give too. Share why you are giving for #GivingTuesday by posting your #UnSelfie on social media, see example below!
