Giving Tuesday is a wonderful opportunity to encourage persons in your circle of influence to give to a United Methodist cause through the Advance. You do not even need to mention the Advance, but simply share the project and how to give.
Giving Tuesday is a global movement designed to balance the spending of Black Friday and Cyber Monday with charitable giving. It is an excellent opportunity for the church to help focus that giving through the Advance. All kinds of ideas and support can be found at www.umcgivingtuesday.org. Choose a project you wish to support and invite your friends to give. You can even invite giving by using your social media platforms with hashtag, #GivingTuesday.
The UMC Giving Tuesday site suggests taking a “selfless selfie” by holding up a sign with a UMC #GivingTuesday graphic. You write, “Please join me in supporting _____________. You can even list the number of an Advance project along with how to give. It means that you need to look at the Advance website and pick a project that inspires you. Then let #GivingTuesday assist you in raising funds.
