About Giving Tuesday
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. Join the movement and give!
It’s a simple idea: whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to contribute toward building the better world we all want to live in.
Help us reach our goal!
The Province of Our Lady of Consolation is participating in Giving Tuesday 2022! We are asking for donations to purchase electric golf carts throughout the Province for our senior friars and other visitors. The golf carts would help ensure that our older friars can get around to continue to minister and explore or access certain outdoor areas that they usually couldn’t due to the rugged terrain or distance.
Your donation will help provide funding to buy electric carts that will expand the horizons for our friars and others who visit our campus. Many times, an electric cart can be used to transport our less mobile guests during Mass on the grass, events, concerts, and other programs. The accessibility of the natural world will further strengthen the friars’ commitment to the Pope’s request of “Care for Our Common Home” and the Franciscan Earth Care Initiative. We hope you will support us during these 24 hours of giving!
While November 29th is the official day of Giving Tuesday, you can donate early, and it will count towards our total on the 29th.
Your participation in projects like this has already been felt across our Province. Your generosity during last year’s Giving Tuesday is helping senior friars live their last years with dignity. When we asked for an electric cart for Mount Saint Francis you responded and now our friars and their guest can travel around the 400-acre sanctuary they reside on.
