This month is all about giving thanks for the things that we have. It also means that the holiday is about to get started! My nonprofit organization TeamWinfrey will be very active this holiday season and we need your support!
This year, on Tuesday, November 29, 2016, TeamWinfrey is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving.
Last year, more than 45,000 organizations in 71 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday. Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities. We invite you to join the movement and to help get out and give this November 29. This year I will once again play Santa and help families in the community have a wonderful holiday season! TeamWinfrey is dedicated to having a meaningful impact on those less fortunate than others. Your support has allowed us to continue to grow and expand, which means we are able to help more people. Autism, Homelessness, and Underprivileged youth are causes that we are very passionate about. Here’s how you can help us!
1. Get your workplace, classrooms, and local government officials, involved in #GivingTuesday. Encourage them to officially sign up as partners on the website (www.givingtuesday. org) and to organize a campaign that promotes a cause for TeamWinfrey or charity that is meaningful to them.
2. Help spread the word about #GivingTuesday. Join the email list by visiting www.givingtuesday.org to receive updates, event invitations, and the latest graphics and tools to share on your social channels.
3. Use the hashtag #GivingTuesday to talk about TeamWinfrey and the causes we support.
4. Localize #GivingTuesday for your town, city, or state. Many organizations have come together to build local #GivingTuesday campaigns in their neighborhoods
There are many ways to get involved in #GivingTuesday. We encourage you to join our movement and visit www.givingtuesday.org to learn more about how you can make a difference.
Off-season workouts begin later this month as well and I'm excited to get back in the gym and start preparing for the 2017 season! My body has healed nicely and I'm excited to get going. My radio show ( The Elijah Winfrey Show ) is doing very well on Alternative Talk Radio 1150. Tune in every Tuesday at 5:30pm pst as I interview great people doing amazing things in the community. I want to thank all of you for the love and support you show me. Take care and remember to always try and make someone or something better.
