#GivingTuesdayNow that we’re past Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, it’s time for… Giving Tuesday!

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. This year help us create #GivingTuesday. A new day for giving back.  On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, global charities, families, businesses, community centers, students and more will come together to create #GivingTuesday.

It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company, or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Be a part of a national celebration of our great tradition of generosity.

Here’s a few ways you can support the Center this holiday season:

  • Donate to our Year-End Campaign!
  • Visit Twig through December 4. Mention the Orange County Rape Crisis Center at checkout to donate 10% of your purchase and receive a 10% discount.
  • Donate your used cell phones and other items on our wishlist.
  • Shop online at AmazonSmile. Register one time and choose the Orange County Rape Crisis Center as your beneficiary. Then each time you shop, simply start at smile.amazon.com, then shop Amazon as usual and they will donate .5% of the purchase price to the Center. It even works with Amazon Prime.

 
Celebrate Giving Tuesday with a gift to the Center! Join the global movement, and don’t forget to take an #unselfie. Show your support when you take a pic, tag it #unselfie, #givingtuesday, and #givelocal, and upload to your Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Instagram. Don’t forget to tag @OCRCC!

Thank you so much for your generosity! Your gift makes a safer community for us all.

Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday have passed, it’s time for Giving Tuesday! Can you imagine how many people we could help if we all donated the money we saved from those amazing shopping deals? Can you imagine how many people could find help, hope, and healing? ‘Tis the season to give back! #GivingTuesday

The Center relies on support from our community throughout the year, and the holiday season is no different. Survivors need support every day, and that’s why our 24-Hour Help Line never closes. Even on Christmas Day.

So how can you help? Read below for a few ideas.

Donate now! We always need help filling in the holes in our budget. And now’s the perfect time to give — get in your end-of-year donation so you can claim your 2012 taxes. Or, consider making a monthly gift. You can sign up to donate each month from your credit card — even a small amount will be extremely helpful since your consistent giving helps us balance our budget during the times of year that donations are low.
