#GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate on improving their local communities and to give back in powerful ways to the charities and causes they support. This year we are focusing on fun community events, as well as encouraging everyone to get signed up as recurring donors, or Bliss Keepers.
- On Tuesday, November 27th at 8:00 a.m. EST Paypal will match all donations up to $7 million for non-profit organizations. Click here to donate on Tuesday, November 27th beginning at 8:00am EST. You can also head to the Asheville Community Yoga Facebook page, click “Donate” and make your donation at 8:00 a.m. EST. The closer to 8:00 a.m. EST you make your donation, the better chances there are for your donation to be doubled. Last year the funds ran out by 8:30 a.m.! If you do not have access to a Facebook account or a computer but would like to donate for this match please contact the studio at 828-255-5575 no later than Friday, November 23rd. Please remember to wait until Tuesday, November 27th at 8:00 a.m. to make your donation double! Update: Thank you for your support. Our giving Tuesday match was a HUGE success. Stay tuned for the final amount raised!
