Plan Ahead, Get Ahead, Feel Good!
Posted on Nov 24, 2020
Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a day to encourage good works and charitable contributions. It has since grown into a global movement of real impact. In past years, Austin PBS shared how wonderful it feels to give back after the indulgences of Thanksgiving and holiday shopping. But this year, people might not be in that heady, overfed, post-consumer space. It's a quieter year of social distancing and staying as safe as possible. But generosity has the power to lift our spirits. For Giving Tuesday 2020, we all need to lift up together.
Even a small act of giving can help dispel the feelings of powerlessness we're all struggling with right now. We all have the ability to help, to spread happiness and kindness.
If you believe in the Austin PBS mission, make an Early Bird Giving Tuesday gift today. All scheduled gifts will be matched up to $2,500 by our Business Supporter Wilson & Goldrick Realtors. This boost into Giving Tuesday on December 1 provides the momentum we need to reach our $50,000 goal! Your contribution and those matching dollars go directly back to the high quality programming on which Central Texas relies. For the 17th year, Americans ranked PBS the most-trusted media institution. That trust translates into fact-based news, beloved shows like Masterpiece and Austin City Limits and on-air and online educational resources that are being utilized more than twice the amount as pre-pandemic.
The connection, inspiration and knowledge that comes from Austin PBS actually comes from you. You make it all possible. Thank you!
