Giving Tuesday was a Success

Yesterday, was Giving Tuesday. So far, local results are showing:

*COTS (Coalition of Temporary Shelter in Detroit, Michigan) received a $25,000 donation from someone who was inspired by Giving Tuesday.

* ATAMI (All Things Artistic Ministries, Inc.) raised over $400 on their Go Fund Account.

*Kiwanis raised 75% of their fundraising goal.

*Peace Neighborhood Center received a donation of school supplies.

And more results to come (which I will add)!!

If your local or favorite non-profit or community organization found success this Giving Tuesday, no matter how small it might seem, please share it in the comments.

Thanks,

Leslie discovered the power of the pen in the third grade after her family moved to a new school district. Writing became a way to sort out her new surroundings and escape to fantasy landscapes. That child, and voice, has matured into a poet, writer, blogger, journalist, online content creator and editor. Leslie is a social entrepreneur with a demonstrated commitment to community. She is an active community member in Washtenaw County (Michigan) with expertise in social media marketing and content management systems, volunteer coordination and writing and 19 years of experience in the areas of online community management, training, leadership development, and social networking. She is interested in facilitating connection with both community residents and businesses. Through this work, the economy of the community is improved and the organizations are financially successful. Her main mode of advocacy and online community, however, is through writing.
