Need help with what to say? Feel free to steal this:
Giving Tuesday is coming up on December 3, and I am supporting It Takes a Village, a local organization that has helped so many families. They say “It Takes a Village to raise a family”, and I am proud to BE the Village for families in my community, because …. [insert your reason why!]
Please help me pay it forward for the next family by donating to It Takes a Village this Giving Tuesday, December 3.
Your gift will train volunteers, so no family will have to wait for visits. Your donation will purchase shelves and tables for the new Village Closet location and a dry store room for the winter. Your donation will provide the childcare during parents group, so mama can focus on her own needs and get the support she deserves.

Thank you for your help!

What is Giving Tuesday?
We have days for “getting” — Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday — but the Tuesday after Thanksgiving is all about GIVING!
