Giving Tuesday, December 3, 2019, is a day to use the power of people and organizations to make the world a better place – and for the Statewide Guardian ad Litem Program, that means helping abused, abandoned and neglected children.
Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a day that encourages people to do good works. Following Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is a day to focus on giving of oneself. Over the last 7 years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity.
The Florida Guardian ad Litem Foundation offers several ways to contribute:
- Donate – Your financial contribution is a sound investment that will help expand services and recruit and train volunteers.
- Volunteer – This is one cause for which the actions of a single person can have a profound impact. We also take this day to acknowledge gratefully the selflessness of more than 10,000 Guardian ad Litem volunteers statewide.
- Volunteer Your Legal Services – Register for Guardian ad Litem’s Pro Bono Attorney List and learn more about Pro Bono opportunities.
- Share Why You Give – When you share your generosity, you inspire others to do the same. Share how and why you’re giving back on #GivingTuesday by posting on social media.
“By joining this movement you are helping us to provide a positive future for Florida’s most vulnerable children,” said Guardian ad Litem Executive Director Alan Abramowitz.
“Every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give,” said Florida Guardian ad Litem Foundation Interim CEO, Sonia Valladares.
