Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday are officially wrapped up and put away – but, for the second year #GivingTuesday has made its way onto the calendar as part of the tradition!
#GivingTuesday™ (#GT) was created to be a national day of giving to kick off the giving season. Today is the second annual GivingTuesday and the goal is to have the community come together in the same way stores take part in Black Friday. But, this effort’s a bit different. This is a day to collectively make an impact through giving to not for profit agencies.
Help spread the word about the importance of supporting nonprofit organizations and celebrate the joy of giving!
Join the efforts of many today and participate in #GivingTuesday by donating and giving back. You can help make a difference for the abused and neglected children of Gloucester, Cumberland and Salem counties by donating today to CASA of CGS, a non-profit organization of volunteers trained to advocate for the best interest of an abused or neglected child. At CASA we advocate for every child to be placed in a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible.
There are about 950 CASA programs in operation nationally, with more than 70,000 women and men serving as CASA volunteers. In New Jersey, there are over 900 CASA volunteers!
Research has shown that children with CASA volunteers
- Are half as likely to re-enter foster care
- Are substantially less likely to spend time in long-term foster care
- Are more likely to be adopted
- Have more services ordered for them
- Are more likely to have a consistent, responsible adult presence
- Spend less time in foster care
- Do better in school*
A donation can be made through the CASA of CGS website: Donate!
No amount is too small! Help us kick off the giving season and be sure to share and use hashtag #GivingTuesday to let others know you were a part of this incredible campaign.
We are thrilled to be included in this and look forward to many more years of being a voice for the abused and neglected children in our tri-county area.
Thank you, CASA of CGS family, for all of your support! We couldn’t do it without you!
Have a wonderful #GivingTuesday!
