Giving Tuesday

via GivingTuesday.org

Giving Tuesday – often stylized as #GivingTuesday on social media – is a worldwide event celebrated annually on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. Started in New York City in 2012, Giving Tuesday is widely considered as a response to the rampant consumerism associated with the holiday season, especially following Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It has since grown into an international day of charitable giving, with individuals, families, and businesses encouraged to extend their generosity toward nonprofits organizations and other philanthropic causes. More than $300 million was raised worldwide on Giving Tuesday in 2017.

This Giving Tuesday, donations made through Facebook or PayPal will be matched 1 to 1 – which means you can donate to CASA of Yellowstone County through our Facebook page or website and have those dollars matched for maximum impact. (Facebook’s and PayPal’s matches will max out at $7 million and $500k, respectively.)

Whether you’ve given in the past or you’re a first-time donor, you can help support advocacy for children in the foster care system with a donation to CASA this #GivingTuesday!

Welcome the Lion on Your Path

Welcome the Lion on Your Path

We all encounter lions in our life, our personal life, and our life as advocates. Sometimes our lions are big; death of a loved one, a job change, a placement change, a failed placement, or a child coming back into care. Sometimes our lions are small; sickness, loss of a friendship, an unanswered text or email, a missed visit, a missed UA, or a failing grade. Big or small, they are lions in our path. It is hard to think about where we are heading or where we have come from when faced with the lion. Can I sneak past it? Can I outrun it? Can I fight it?  Can I go back and take a different path?
