NDSS Participates in #GivingTuesday

Once again, NDSS will be participating in the #GivingTuesday campaign, which is taking place the day after #CyberMonday on December 3rd.  The continued goal of #GivingTuesday is to create an annual giving movement for all charities on this day, and NDSS is pleased to be included for a second year.

Last year on #GivingTuesday our donors represented 20 different states.  More than 3,000 people liked the NDSS #GivingTuesday posts and 600 people shared them on the NDSS and NDSS Buddy Walk® Facebook pages.

Additionally, several of our well-known supporters endorsed us on Twitter on #GivingTuesday:  Jane Lynch, Nancy O'Dell, Chris Wragge, Rachel Coleman, Imagination Movers, Kelle Hampton, Lisa Graystone and Ceci Elizalde (who also tweeted in Spanish)

This year, we'll be tweeting and posting about #GivingTuesday all day on Tuesday, December 3.  If you’d like to join us and our Celebrity Ambassadors in the endorsement of NDSS and a worldwide day of giving back, please share our posts and tweet with our handle.

Here are some sample tweets you can use on #GivingTuesday or in the week leading up to it. Please include @NDSS and #GivingTuesday in your tweet.
