Something magical happens when we tell a person that they matter. That they are important. It changes their lives by empowering them. And the wonderful thing is – we all can make this magic happen.
There is nothing more magical than having the world open to you through Information Science. Unfortunately, technology is not available to everyone. ASIS&T believes we can make a magical impact in one day. As a community, we can do this by supporting an organization that provides technology to philanthropic organizations, nonprofits and libraries around the world through #GivingTuesday on November 29th.
#GivingTuesday is a special call to action to create a global day of giving that brings diverse organizations and communities around the world together to give back. Last year 700,000 people participated and raised $116 million in over 70 countries. This year, #GivingTuesday will be on November 29th.
The ASIS&T Board of Directors has selected TechSoup Global to partner with on this initiative. TechSoup Global provides software products to nonprofits, charities and libraries around the world.
Please go to the TechSoup Global donation page to make your donation before or on November 29th. Please make sure to indicate that this is for #GivingTuesday in the Donation Program Designation field.
If every member just gave $50, we could make a powerful global contribution.
Please join ASIS&T for #GivingTuesday by donating on November 29th
