This year has been challenging for everyone, so why not kick off the season of generosity by participating in GivingTuesday on December 1st and close out 2020 on a positive note!
GivingTuesday was launched in 2012 as a simple idea: to create a day that encourages people and organizations to give back by doing good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. People demonstrate generosity in many ways whether it’s helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving to causes we care about. Each act of generosity has the power to transform our communities and our world.
InnerAct Alliance and our coalition partners, StandUP Polk and UthMpact, are in need of donations to help bridge the shortfall in funding caused by COVID-19. Substance abuse prevention initiatives in the Lakeland and Polk County community include science-based education classes taught to nearly 15,000 students in 69 schools, as well as outreach to over 100,000 citizens via informative presentations and social norms marketing, a premier youth leadership program, and family-oriented awareness events such as the Annual Red Ribbon Campaign and motivational rallies for fifth-grade students countywide.
“Community engagement and support are vital to continue our agency’s programs to educate children, teens, and families about the dangers of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs, along with bullying prevention. Any and all donations will be appreciated!” said Angie Ellison, executive director of InnerAct Alliance.
