#GivingTuesday- It’s a two for one! See our newest video!

posted: Tuesday, November 14, 2017

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy, while celebrating generosity worldwide. #GivingTuesday demonstrates the power of community engagement to affect social change. Held after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it offers a break from traditional holiday shopping to foster collaboration with community organizations and the causes they represent.

This year, for #GivingTuesday we are asking our community - you! - to support our Helen Vine Recovery Center and its move to a new home - and we have not one but two fun ways you can participate!

Part 1 -Take a sneak peek of our crowd funding video we are releasing for #GivingTuesday and help us raise funds for the new Helen Vine Center! Generously created by our friends at First Person Creative in San Francisco, this whimsical spot tells the story of house, home, recovery, family and the practical needs of the new Helen Vine facility, slated to open early 2018. Hungry for hashtags? This event is tagged with #GivingTuesday, #Recovery, #rehab and #FirstPersonSF The best part? You don't even have to wait for #GivingTuesday - feel free to donate and share now!

Holiday Gift Tip #1- Make a donation on GivingTuesday, November 28th to Helen Vine Recovery Center to honor the courage of those in recovery.

Part 2 - Help us kick off the Giving Season on #GivingTuesday Eve with a special holiday event. In generous partnership with The Marin Jewelers’ Guild, Buckelew Programs is co-hosting a night of connection, philanthropic support and … shopping!
