Literacy Volunteers of Tifton-Tift County is once again participating in #GivingTuesday through the website. Last year, Literacy Volunteers received $500 in inkind website design services and other prizes and donations by participating. 

Anyone may view the local Literacy campaign, including a touching story by one of our newest volunteers, Julia Kersey, about how Literacy Volunteers helped her husband and why she now volunteers for the organization.

Entering its fifth year, # GivingTuesday is a global day of giving observed on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. According to the GivingTuesday Facebook page: "We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back."
On Tuesday, November 29, 2016, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then use the #GivingTuesday hashtage to tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.
