Three Easy Ways to make #GivingTuesday A Success in Baltimore

· by

GIVINGTUESDAYDIPTICOn Tuesday, December 3rd Blue Water Baltimore will be asking our supporters to do something pretty special: help prove Baltimore is the most generous city in America!

We know how special the people in Baltimore are: every day we work with you to protect our watersheds: 124 thousand acres of them.

Every year we are amazed, and thankful, for the huge number of volunteers who turn out for stream cleanups, tree plantings, pollution monitoring, native plant sales, storm drain stenciling, and countless other efforts too numerous to count.

As Fall winds down and Winter sets in, thoughts naturally turn to family, holidays, and – yes – shopping.

This year, in response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Blue Water Baltimore is joining charities across the region for something new: #GivingTuesday.

Tuesday, December 3rd is #GivingTuesday, a national day of charity which proves that the holidays can be about both giving and giving back. It celebrates how Americans can do more with their wallets than just shop – and that Americans can give as good as we get. #GivingTuesday is charity awareness built for the social media era.

Our goal for online giving on Tuesday, December 3rd is $12,416. That’s just one dollar for every 10 acres in our watershed!

All told, Bmore Gives More will raise $5 Million for Baltimore causes. Aggregating our online giving in a single day will show the world just how charitable Baltimore really is.

Bmore Gives More is also organizing a tremendous array of donor rewards and matching gifts, so your donation on #GivingTuesday will do more!
