Be a Hero This Giving Tuesday

Updated: Nov 15

#GivingTuesday 2022 is November 29th


Everyone knows Black Friday. Then there's Cyber Monday. And right after that, there's Giving Tuesday. But what is it?

It's the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. So this year, it's on November 29th, when many people are shopping and preparing for holiday gift-giving for their loved ones. But some also give to organizations that help people they don't know. It is in this spirit that nonprofits join the Giving Tuesday initiative as part of their fundraising plans.


Lots of philanthropic organizations support Giving Tuesday. Your employer might support it, too! So as part of your plan to make a donation on November 29th, first ask your employer whether they can match your donation.


Last year, The Story School's Giving Tuesday goal was $1,200. Donations were more than double that amount, including being selected for a surprise donation from Facebook! We are incredibly grateful for everyone's generosity!


Our #GivingTuesday 2022 goal is to raise at least $5,000. Could you be a hero, and contribute to our team effort?


We have some incredibly good news! If your donation is unmatched, an anonymous donor has offered a matching program!

  • For a donation of $25 or more, the mystery donor will match it by 50%. So, for example, if you give $30, our unsung hero will contribute $15, so the donation is $45!

  • For a donation of $100 or more, the match will be at 100%. So, for example, if you give $110, the secret sponsor will also give $110, your donation becomes $220!

  • The donor is generously offering up to $5,000 total potential contribution.


We know that so many of our families and heroes have already given so much so we are asking for those that will have trouble to give directly to help recruit others to give to our cause this year. Share the video below, ask them to join our newsletter, or set up your own Facebook campaign for The Story School (here's how: create a fundraiser for a non-profit on Facebook).



The aim of Giving Tuesday is to lessen suffering, fix what's broken, and create more good in the world. So, don your cape, brandish your sword (or at least your fingers on your computer), and be a hero! Take a listen to what some of our heroes had to say about camp this year



Thank you so much!


The Story School Giving Tuesday Campaign will be hosted on Facebook and will go live a week before November 29th. Afraid you might forget? Give Now Here or check back on our website and newsletter later in the month
