GivingTuesday 2019

#GIVINGTUESDAY, is an international day of giving. Join the generosity.

What is GivingTuesday?

We have two days for saving: Black Friday and Cyber Monday.  On Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2019, we have a day for giving: GivingTuesday. On GivingTuesday, corporations, religious organizations, families, charities, and individuals from around the globe will join forces for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. In celebration of GivingTuesday, let’s push our differences aside to create a better world for all – a world where everyone has a safe, decent and affordable place to live.

Give a Dunk for GivingTuesday!

Back by popular demand, the staff at Beaches Habitat for Humanity is willing to lay it all on the line in the name of affordable housing. And when we say “all” we mean all, as in head to toe. Each staff member is subject to a chilly plunge into a giant bucket of water. Yes, it’s true – we’re going to the dunk tank to show you how much we care about our Jacksonville Beaches neighbors! And YOU get to choose who gets dunked!

How Does This Work?

From now until midnight on #GivingTuesday, December 3, 2019, your donation can send the staff member of your choice to the dunk tank! At midnight on December 3, each staff member who has more than $1,000 in their name will step up to be dunked. On Friday, Dec. 6th we’ll be hosting a “dunking” party for anyone who wants to see the splashing live. For those of you who can’t make it, we’ll share it live on social media too!

Join a staff member’s campaign or start your own!

Why Should I Give?

Besides the fun of seeing your favorite staffer soaked from head to toe, your donation will help to make a real difference in the lives of your neighbors. Your donation gives a local, qualified family the opportunity to buy an affordable home in the Jacksonville Beaches. A stable, affordable place to live is the building block that many Habitat homeowners need to improve their lives, often giving them the opportunity to complete an education, spend more time with their children, or finally start saving for retirement!

You don’t have to donate to be a part of GivingTuesday!
