Giving Tuesday…and a Challenge

We have a day to give thanks. To spend time with family and friends. To eat…and eat some more. To watch the parades and some football (or a lot!). To celebrate all that is good in life and all of our blessings.

Then we have a day to shop until we drop (Black Friday), a day to shop local (Small Business Saturday), and a day to shop online (Cyber Monday).

And now we have Giving Tuesday, a day to give back. It’s a global initiative to celebrate generosity as people all around the world look for ways to give back on Tuesday, December 1, 2015.

The Crossnore School has been challenged to raise $5,000 on Giving Tuesday. Let’s bring in the tens and twenties and fifties all on one day until we meet the goal. And when we do, a special Crossnore friend has agreed to match every donation, dollar for dollar, up to $5,000. That means we can raise $5,000 and watch it turn into $10,000! All in one day.

$5,000 – that’s only 100 people giving $50. You might think that’s a small amount and wonder how that would help provide for our children. But it’s not a small amount. $50 will provide a chance to learn to dance. It might purchase cleats or shin guards for a budding soccer star. It could even help a child learn discipline and respect through martial arts.

So you see, it’s really not a small amount at all.

Racism is Trauma

Crossnore School & Children’s Home exists to be a sanctuary for children and their families and racism destroys sanctuary. Racism is trauma and is part of systemic community trauma that has long term negative impacts on people and communities of color. Crossnore believes that black lives matter, and we are committed to building an anti-racist organization and supporting the development of racial equity in our communities.
