Black Friday. Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday.
“GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world… Over the past seven years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. GivingTuesday strives to build a world in which the catalytic power of generosity is at the heart of the society we build together, unlocking dignity, opportunity, and equity around the globe.”
Midpen Media is proudly taking part in the celebration of Giving Tuesday this holiday season, and we’re inviting our community to join us! With a fundraising goal set at $10,000, we’re hoping to bring media-making opportunities to students and producers throughout the Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Atherton, Stanford, and East Palo Alto communities.
As we reflect on the things that we are grateful for over the course of these next few days, consider opening your heart to others who could benefit from a generous donation. Every dollar we raise will go towards creating opportunities for the members of our community to access media-making education and equipment that may otherwise be financially out of reach.
If you’re ready to join the celebration, you can support Midpen Media by donating to our PayPal account, designating Midpen Media as your charity of choice on Amazon Smile, or contributing to our Facebook fundraiser. Don’t forget that Facebook promises to match every donation made through our Facebook fundraiser beginning on Tuesday, December 3rd!
Midpen Media functions and serves our community as well as it does largely because of the generosity of our donors. Our producers, youth participants, volunteers, interns, and media-making students have a studio to call their own because of the generosity of people like you. Help us this holiday season as we continue to uphold our mission to inform, inspire and empower people to speak and act on behalf of their communities.
