Let’s return to the true spirit of the holidays
And #Give4Justice on #GivingTuesday!
Let’s #give4justice on #GivingTuesday
We had Black Friday. Today is Cyber Monday. Two days that are all about shopping. And deals. And commercialism.
What happened to the holiday season being about giving thanks for what we have – and caring for those who don’t have enough – instead of focusing on getting more stuff for ourselves?
At OneJustice, we think it’s time to return to the true spirit of the holidays – by giving thanks AND giving back to our communities.
That is why last year we were among the inaugural partners in #GivingTuesday – a national campaign to focus more on giving than getting. Spend more time volunteering than shopping. Return to caring for those who are in need rather than tracking down the best deal.
And we’re super proud to be doing it again this year!
Started by the United Nations Foundation and the 92d Street Y, #GivingTuesday builds on the American tradition of giving back but uses technology to give this idea greater impact. #GivingTuesday is intended to encourage Americans to reflect and give back. It’s a collective moment for individual and community action. This year, more than 7,000 partners across the country are taking part – including large corporations and small businesses, faith-based organizations, nonprofits, and local government.
And we are rallying the legal services and access to justice community to make sure that justice is a big part of #GivingTuesday. We can all celebrate by giving the gift of justice to Californians in need! So join us tomorrow – on #GivingTuesday – in giving for justice!
How do you do that, you ask? It’s sooooooo easy!
- Join OneJustice and the California Campaign for Justice in our jointly hosted #Give4Justice twitter party from 12pm to 1pm. Just track our feed at @OneJusticeOrg and search using hashtag #Give4Justice. We’ll be posing questions about the power of pro bono and supporting legal services throughout the hour – and tracking and retweeting your replies!
- Or donate to your local legal aid organization – or the statewide Campaign for Justice. Or volunteer with your local pro bono program. Thank you for YOUR actions, which will make all the difference for those facing pressing legal problems and suffering needlessly from solvable legal problems.
Thank you for giving thanks AND giving back!
