Feast of St Catherine the Great Martyr of Alexandria
We have two days for getting deals – Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On #GivingTuesday, we have a day for giving back. Entering its seventh year, #GivingTuesday has evolved into the opening day of the giving season.
We've participated in this day of giving for the last two years. The #8thDayGivingTuesday campaigns have proven crucial to funding our work of renewing culture through faith and learning.
The first year Eighth Day Institute participated, we raised $5,000 in one day. The second year, we almost doubled those donations, reaching a little over $8,000. This year, we're using #GivingTuesday as a launch into our end-of-year fundraising and we're going to raise $12,000. That will put us in a remarkable position, covering a quarter of the total end-of-year need.
And we've got some exciting plans in the works to help us reach this milestone. Last week I had the opportunity to sit down with a few Eighth Day Members to ask them what they thought made our community unique. Over the next two days, as we roll into #GivingTuesday, we'll be releasing videos like this first one below by Dr. Malcolm Harris: "We Are Not Lost".
