Dear Alpha Delta State Sisters,
The holiday season is upon us! In the coming weeks, it will be difficult to focus on the real meaning of the season with so many events, messages – and yes, appeals bombarding us. Before we become overwhelmed, today is a perfect time to take a deep breath, and consider what is most important.
Giving Tuesday is a movement started in recent years as a response to the commercialization and consumerism of the post-Thanksgiving shopping bonanza beginning with Black Friday and Cyber Monday. All of us appreciate a bargain, and with so much attention focused on buying, it’s tough to remember the spirit of giving that is at the heart of the holiday season.
Are you looking for a new tradition this year? Why not donate to Alpha Delta State Ohio Educational Foundation, specifically the Individual/Community/Classroom Project fund? This new fund was designed specifically for our working member educators and our chapters that have great ideas for individual, classroom and community projects up to $500.00. In our inaugural year, our goal is to collect at least $2,000.00 - enough to fund up to 4 innovative projects! Won’t you ask Santa to send a gift on your behalf or send a gift in honor or memory of a friend?
Every act of generosity counts, and each means even more when we give together. Everyone has something to give – time, expertise, simple acts of kindness, or monetary donations large or small.
On this Giving Tuesday, November 28, take a moment to give to Alpha Delta State Ohio Educational Foundation and give someone a chance to improve her community and future generations.
