GivingTuesday is the international day of generosity happening on November 30, 2021. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past 9 years, this idea has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

People can show their generosity in a variety of ways during GivingTuesday⁠⁠—whether it’s helping a neighbor, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, or giving to causes, everyone has something to give and every act of generosity counts. At VSA our kids participate in year round #givingback by volunteering their time, such as caroling at the Senior Center, doing community service, such as trash clean up, and sharing generously by collecting items like socks for "Socktober" or food for those in need.

In Colorado, we use #GivingTuesday to schedule our Colorado Gives Day donation so we can #givewherewelive on #cogives day. Vertical Skills Academy is raising money to help with scholarships and learning materials for our students with dyslexia. Every student deserves to be able to read. #readingisaright
