Giving Tuesday

What is Giving Tuesday?

#GivingTuesday is a special call to action which creates a national day of giving around the annual shopping and spending season to inspire giving every day. Please support our local youth camp – Camp Kirby!

Where did the idea come from?

The retail industry has long benefited from seasonal shopping that symbolically kicks off with “Black Friday” – a day that has since inspired “Small Business Saturday” and “Cyber Monday.” #GivingTuesday, then, serves as a celebratory, fully connected day to kick off the giving season, when many make their holiday and end-of-year charitable gifts.

Who makes Giving Tuesday successful?

The success of Giving Tuesday depends on you. You are the most important part of making this movement a reality.  Youth are depending on you this holiday season to help provide a place where they can find their individual spark – what makes them unique.

Why should you donate?

Camp Kirby provides fun and educational programming for youth in an outdoor setting.  Archery, kayaking, and outdoor skills are a few of our programs that get kids engaged and outside.  Your donation will go towards beds, mattresses, tents and other essential items that allow our campers to focus on experiencing their full potential at Camp Kirby.
