This year, on Tuesday, November 29, 2016, Kids Vision for Life St. Louis (KVFL) is proud to participate in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving.
Last year, more than 45,000 organizations in 71 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday. Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities. We invite you to join the movement and to help get out and give this November 29.
KVFL encourages our supporters to participate in #GivingTuesday in the following ways:
- Make a tax-deductible gift to KVFL. KVFL aims to raise $200 on #GivingTuesday to put toward providing students in the St. Louis area with no cost glasses. More information on how to make a donation and a link to our PayPal can be found at the following link: http://kidsvisionforlifestlouis.com/donate/
- Volunteer your time at a screening day. Volunteers are an invaluable part of our program and have helped our program screen over 18,000 students since August 2016. If you are interested in volunteering with KVFL, more information can be found at the following link: http://kidsvisionforlifestlouis.com/volunteer/
- Spread the word. Use the hashtag #GivingTuesday to talk about the causes and organizations you support. Invite your friends and family to like our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages.
