May 5 Giving Tuesday Now
On May 5, 2020 we come together as a global community…
To give. To help. To thank. To heal.
#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of generosity and unity, a day to come together and give back in response to the unprecedented need caused by the Coronavirus.
At a time when we are all experiencing greater isolation due to the pandemic, generosity is what brings people of all races, faiths and political views together across the globe. Generosity gives everyone the power to make a positive change in the lives of others and is a fundamental value anyone can act on. Make a donation today and help sustain our organization.
Generosity can help alleviate the isolation and loneliness that many of us feel during this time. Our ability to give hope and joy can counter feelings of powerlessness.
Below are some additional ideas from Heidi James, Vice President, Development on how you can remain connected through kindness and generosity on Giving Tuesday on May 5th (or any day of the week) while maintaining physical distancing:
Check in on a neighbor
Call a loved one
Share a skill
Write a letter
Volunteer to deliver food
At Bread & Roses we believe in the power of the healing connection that music provides. Your donation will help us continue building these connections. Even in times of economic crisis, we each have a deep reserve of generosity and the capacity to give back in myriad ways to make a difference. Sharing your time, your talent, your treasure with others is a great way to support your community.
