#GivingTuesday with NextGen – Dec 1

For the third year in a row, NextGen Genealogy Network has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.

Occurring this year on December 1#GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the US) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.

This year is going to be a bit different than we’ve had before because of what is going on in our world right now — pandemic, politics, and people. In the midst of all of this, we look to what we are thankful for, and it is all the wonderful people in our lives and how we can share our stories with the world around us.

But, like everyone else, we are wanting to continue our mission here at NextGen Genealogy Network, which is:

“…building connections between all generations, providing resources to promote the next generation’s engagement in the genealogical community, and offering innovative, virtual opportunities for development.”

To be able to implement all these various projects and programs (like our scholarship we put together every other year!) we are asking for members of NextGen to show their support on #GivingTuesday (Dec. 1) with a donation to NextGen.

For those of you who are interested in joining NextGen Genealogy Network’s  #GivingTuesday initiative can visit tnggn.org and click on the green “DONATE NOW” button.
