These past four months have been difficult to find words for. With challenges to overcome but also many things to celebrate, all of us at Up with People have found ourselves coming back to gratitude.
As we re-imagine the future of Up with People, we invite each and every one of you to join us on Tuesday, May 5, 2020 during Up with People’s participation in #GivingTuesdayNow which will be celebrated as A Day of Gratitude!
Joining #GivingTuesdayNow in a Global Day of Giving and Unity
#GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity that will take place as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. The day is designed to drive an influx of generosity, citizen engagement, business and philanthropy activation, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world.
At a time when we are all greatly impacted by this pandemic, generosity is what brings people of all walks of life together. Generosity gives everyone power to make a positive change in the lives of others and is a fundamental value anyone can act on. It’s a day for everyone around the world to stand together and give back in all ways, no matter who or where we are.
We have a long road ahead, and your support is both appreciated and critical to future success. With your support, we aim to meet our goals. These funds go beyond covering the more than $700,000 loss due to COVID-19 and allow us to look optimistically to the future to begin re-imagining Up with People. We humbly ask for your continued support to help us get there!
