We are proud in promoting the newly created Englewood Quality of Life Fund for #GivingTuesday which is set for 11/29.
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) on Nov. 29th and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
When most people think about the community of Englewood, they think of poverty, crime and hopelessness. However, there are committed residents working collectively to make a difference and recently completed a Quality-of-Life Plan for the community. We are asking YOU to support the projects and early actions of this plan by donating on #GivingTuesday to the Englewood Quality-of-Life Fund. Our goal is to raise $10,000 which will be match $1 for $1!
