Another #GivingTuesday is in the books. According to GivingTuesday.org, this charitable phenomenon generated nearly $2 billion in online and offline donations in the USA alone this year. And that’s incredible. Indeed, we are especially proud of #GivingTuesday’s impact given that Bridge Alliance member 92Y created the concept!
That said, #GivingTuesday is just one day each year. It’s a very important day, but if our ultimate goal is healthy self-governance, we must work towards that goal year round. That doesn’t mean donating every day, but it does mean consistently thinking about what you can contribute and how you can be part of the solution.
In other words, we should strive to have a #GivingTuesday mindset even when it’s not #GivingTuesday (hence the subject line of this email). With that said, here are a few ways to act on the #GivingTuesday mindset at the end of 2019 and into 2020:
- Attend the Better Angels Democratic Reforms debate on December 10th
- Learn about politicians who have been recognized by Issue One for their commitment to fixing our political system
- If you happen to live near Los Angeles, take a class on Advanced Public Engagement for Local Government with the Davenport Institute
There are so many ways to contribute toward a future of healthy self-governance, and you can be sure that we will continue presenting you -- our amazing supporters -- with possibilities and opportunities to act on your #GivingTuesday mindset every week for the foreseeable future.
As always, thank you for your support.
