Aging Ahead Joins the Global #GivingTuesday Movement
Aging Ahead has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Occurring this year on November 27th, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
Those who are interested in joining Aging Ahead’s #GivingTuesday initiative can donate or volunteer to help seniors and caregivers in our community.
