#GivingTuesday bloggers – working together to change the world

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Ernest Disney-Britton

As religious people, we are also more generous, but how much of a difference has our giving made this year? Pope Francis lamented last year that, "Truly there are so many tears this Christmas." I suspect we will hear much of the same this year. That's why we are partnering with bloggers from around the world to support the #GivingTuesday movement. Now in its fourth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving. Observed this year on December 1st, it coincides this year with World AIDS Day and follows the post-Thanksgiving shopping frenzy of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. We're making gifts that matter this year to the arts via power2give, a crowdfunding platform just for the arts, and we ask you to join us. [power2give]
