We hope you enjoyed the Thanksgiving holidays!
You may have heard that today is #GivingTuesday, a movement to provide charitable support to communities following the retail holidays of “Black Friday”, “Small Business Saturday”, and “Cyber Monday”. Please consider celebrating this #GivingTuesday with WePAC!
There are many ways to contribute to #GivingTuesday. Of course, one of the easiest ways to directly impact WePAC’s work in Philadelphia’s schools is to make a charitable donation of any size. It costs approximately $14,000 for WePAC to reopen, stock, and staff a school library. Help us raise the funds to start a new school library in 2014!
Here are some other great ways that you can #give during this holiday season:
- Celebrate “Literacy’s no Luxury”, our first annual holiday happy hour this Thursday, from 5pm to 8pm at Ladder 15 in Center City Philadelphia. A $10 donation buys you the chance to win a number of door prizes plus great beer, wine, and cocktail specials! Meet our staff, volunteers and fellow WePAC supporters while celebrating a great year of library and literacy programs! Busy? You can click here now to donate $10 and still be eligible for the door prizes, including a two hour portrait photography session, autographed gear from Cole Hamels and tickets to the Barnes Foundation!
- Invite us to hold a volunteer information orientation at your place of worship, community center, or even your book club! Our students rely on our talented and dedicated volunteers, and we need many more community members to grow our programs to reach more students.
- Like us on Facebook, Follow us on Twitter, and invite your friends and family to check us out and “Like” us, too! The greater our message can travel, the farther it can take our communities!
WePAC relies on your generous gifts and your amazing volunteer hours all year. Thank you for all that you do, and please enjoy a wonderful #GivingTuesday!
