Non-profit Sauder Village has joined #GivingTuesday, a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. GivingTuesday will kick off the generosity season this year by inspiring people to give back on December 1, 2020, and throughout the year.
“Sauder Village is pleased to be part of the #GivingTuesday movement again this year,” shared Kim Krieger, Media Relations Manager. “As a 501c3 non-profit organization, gifts of time, talent and finances to Sauder Village positively impact people of all ages. Donations help us to provide a special place where families can slow down, spend quality time together, and enjoy fun with a purpose.”
Sauder Village is Ohio’s largest living history destination and even though this unforeseen pandemic has affected us in many ways, we were able to open our doors on June 24, offering people a safe and friendly place where they could come together and regain hope for the future. Donations to the Sauder Village Experience Fund will help preserve our rich heritage that would otherwise be lost forever. Please consider making a gift to Sauder Village on Tuesday, December 1, 2020 at www.saudervillage.org or by mailing a check to: Sauder Village, PO Box 235, Archbold, OH 43502.
On #GivingTuesday, Sauder Village guests can also round up a purchase or make a donation while visiting the Barn Restaurant, Doughbox Bakery and Sauder Village Retail Shops. People are also encouraged to share the #GivingTuesday message on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to encourage others to get involved.
GivingTuesday was launched in 2012 as a simple idea: to create a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
People demonstrate generosity in many ways on GivingTuesday. Whether it’s helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving to causes we care about, every act of generosity counts. GivingTuesday has raised billions of dollars for critical causes around the world and gets 21 billion impressions on social media from people and organizations speaking up for the causes that matter to them and encouraging others to get involved in their communities.
“GivingTuesday inspires people all around the world to embrace their power to drive progress around the causes they care about, not just on one day but throughout the year.” said Asha Curran, GivingTuesday’s CEO, and co-founder. “With country and community leaders, millions of organizations, and countless givers of all kinds, GivingTuesday is creating a shared space where we can see the radical implications of a more generous world.”
