Local charity looking for people to donate on Giving Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana joins the efforts of Giving Tuesday—a national movement dedicated to prompting a day of philanthropic activity and charitable giving.

Giving Tuesday began in 2012 to encourage people to give to others in the midst of holiday shopping and other preparations.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana has a goal to raise $1,200 in one day, which the organization said is enough funds to create and support a 1-to-1 mentoring match for one year. They are promoting their goal through social media.

The charity asks for direct financial support, volunteer time, or the donation of event or sport tickets for people in the program to use.

For more information or to donate to their cause, visit the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana website (bbbskydonate.com) or check out their Facebook page. You can also find them on Twitter: @bigbrosbigsis.
