Giving Tuesday and Colorado Gives

What is Giving Tuesday?

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog of resources.  Giving Tuesday is Tuesday, November 29th, 2016.

We at Habitat for Humanity of Mesa County are taking the #PJPledge to help draw attention to the day.  We are asking our staff and anyone that would like to join us and wear their pajamas to work that day.
