Description

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog of resources.

#GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners— nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals—to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness.

As a global movement, #GivingTuesday unites countries around the world by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.

The Memphis Urban League Young Professionals is a volunteer and fundraising auxiliary for the Memphis Urban League. Our Empowered by 10 Campaign is a fundraising strategy that benefits the Memphis Urban League and helps support and fund the work that the Memphis Urban League does in workforce development and education and youth development.

What is Empowered by 10?

Empowered by 10 is the simple premise that a donation of $10 can help us in furthering our mission and purpose in Memphis. We are asking for 1000 donors to give $10 to reach our goal of raising $10,000 for our affiliate, The Memphis Urban League. Simple, right?

As we move into the holiday season, #GivingTuesday allows us to pour back into organizations that help our community everyday with little to no resources. Capturing the spirit of Memphis, Grit, Grind & Give to the Memphis Urban League so that we can continue our mission of empowering communities and changing lives.
