Over the past few days we've had Gray Thursday (the holiday formerly known as Thanksgiving), Black Friday, Small Business Saturday (which we fully support) and Cyber Monday - which some online retailers are now stretching into Cyber Week. I understand the allure of holiday shopping, but I hope there is a little money left for donating to worthy organizations. Hence Giving Tuesday.
Giving Tuesday began last year on the east coast, and has expanded nationwide in 2013. If you have time, talent, or treasure to share with non-profit groups, won't you please consider celebrating this giving day? Churches, arts organizations, animal shelters, libraries, and more depend on donations to accomplish their work.
Both the Caestecker Library Foundation and the Friends of the Library are registered non-profit organizations, with donations tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. We appreciate every gift received, and are tremendously grateful for your support.
