November 26, 2012—There is a day for giving thanks, followed by several days focused on getting. Sequoia Park Zoo Foundation is joining a new effort by charities, families, businesses, and individuals across America to get us back into the spirit of giving to create GivingTuesday™.
On Tuesday November 27, 2012 tens of thousands of people are coming together to transform the way we think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. The Sequoia Park Zoo Foundation is asking everyone who believes in the Zoo and its mission to think about how they can give thanks for the presence of such a special place in our little corner of the world.
“Sequoia Park Zoo is the oldest zoo in California, and at the same time it’s leading the way in terms of what a 21st century zoo should be—a facility dedicated to education and conservation of wildlife,” says Chuck Dominick, Sequoia Park Zoo Foundation President. “Our path into the future is made possible in no small part by the generosity of this community, and we welcome contributions of any size.”
GivingTuesday is a simple idea, based around finding a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to join in acts of giving. Tell everyone you can about what you are doing and why it matters. Join a national celebration of our great tradition of generosity, and visit www.givingtuesday.org for more information on how you can help.
