Inside NU readers,
Following up on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday is the best post-Thanksgiving day: Giving Tuesday. And we are so excited to join up with Northwestern University Dance Marathon to help raise money for its 2017 beneficiaries: Gigi’s Playhouse and the Evanston Community Foundation.
GiGi’s Playhouse is a nationwide network of Down syndrome achievement centers that impacts the lives of children and adults with Down syndrome through free educational and therapeutic programs. Last year, over 25,000 individuals with Down syndrome benefited from their programs and support. NUDM’s financial donations will help fund GiGi’s purposeful programming through expanding the speech and language program, improving educational literacy and math tutoring, as well as further developing exercise programming and therapy.
The Evanston Community Foundation is a nonprofit dedicated to supporting local Evanston community organizations including local art, early childhood education, mentoring programs and more.
We have set up a fundraising page, making it quick and easy to donate to the beneficiaries. By visiting our page, you can make a tax-deductible donation of whatever amount you’re comfortable with. Maybe even it give this a retweet or a Facebook share. Anything helps.
