After its creation in 2012, Giving Tuesday has been celebrated each year on the first Tuesday following Thanksgiving as a day that encourages people to do good and spread kindness. Eight years later, it has transformed into a global movement of generosity that brings together charities, nonprofits, and the public to transform their communities and the world.
Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast is celebrating #GivingTuesday on November 28, 2023. Our council focuses on building community and sisterhood, appreciating the unique value of all girls, and helping one another through tough times. It has been nothing short of a challenging year, but our girls have continued to band together to spread joy, lend a helping hand, and be leaders in their communities. This year, they have sewn handmade masks for doctors and nurses, organized food drives, and sent handwritten cards of encouragement. Girl Scouts know that there is strength in numbers, and our work would not be possible without the generous and unwavering support of our community
