#GiveShiningHope for #GivingTuesdayCLT

What is Giving Tuesday?

After battling the crowds and getting amazing deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, wouldn’t it feel great to do something for “good”? Here’s your chance: Giving Tuesday, coming up on November 28 is a global day dedicated to giving.  In Charlotte, Shining Hope Farms is celebrating #GivingTuesdayCLT with 230+ other local nonprofits. Together, we’re working to raise $10 million for our community and $30,000 for Shining Hope Farms! (everything donated to us goes straight to Shining Hope Farms).

Every dollar you donate now through Tuesday, November 28 will help us get to our big goal of $30,000!

What is #GivingTuesdayCLT?

Answer: Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving. After the sales of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it’s a time to celebrate and encourage charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations. #GivingTuesdayCLT is Charlotte’s very own version of the global giving campaign. Last year’s event was a success and this year’s goals are even bigger.

Why are you partnering with Share Charlotte for #GivingTuesdayCLT?

Answer: Shining Hope Farms is partnering with Share Charlotte and 230+ other local nonprofits for the citywide #GivingTuesdayCLT campaign. This partnership is helping to generate support and awareness for the Charlotte nonprofit community at large and makes us eligible for additional funds.

We believe in the promise of “the rising tide lifts all boats .”

But you’re also running your own campaign?

Answer: Yes! All 230+ nonprofits participating are running their own campaigns to raise money for their organizations and to help us collectively raise $10 Million for our community. Our campaign is #GiveShiningHope. We are challenging our supporters to #GiveShiningHope through supporting the Hippotherapy and Therapeutic Riding programs at our Charlotte, Mount Holly, and Conover locations by giving in one of the ways listed above.

What will the money be used for?

Answer: We have a big goal this year of raising $30,000, but we also have big plans.

Some funds will be used to add equine staff to support our growing programs and the needs of our diverse participants. Some will also be used to maintain and advance our programs as a whole, which enable children with disabilities to achieve functional goals—facilitating transformational quality of life improvements for them and their families. We provide these services with no out of pocket costs to the majority of our families, 36% of which are below 200% of the poverty line.
