The contra to the widely-recognized shopping days of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday began as a way to combat consumerism.  It’s a day when the world comes together to celebrate philanthropy and social good. A day to remind us to give back.

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving, spreading the potential of social media and the generosity of caring people like you. Whether it’s giving some of your time, a donation, or the gift of the power of your voice – it unites us all by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another. It’s the perfect time to show madd love. #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. We hope you will #chooseUTEC.

Please join us on November 28th as we continue to ignite and nurture the ambition of proven-risk youth to trade violence and poverty for social and economic success in Lowell and Lawrence.

Donate. Share. Break barriers.
