What is #GivingTuesday?
Giving Tuesday is a global, online movement to rise up and support our favorite non-profits. After a weekend of shopping for good deals, November 28 offers a day for good deeds. This #GivingTuesday, we are asking our supporters to help us raise money for our scholarship fund. Victory Family Ministries offers rescue programs for struggling families. This can be expensive. While we only charge what our programs cost, many families simply cannot afford it. Individuals and churches, who choose to give to our scholarship fund, allow us to be able to help offset the cost of tuition to families who need it most.
Take an #UNselfie to help raise awareness!
Our generation is enamored with taking selfies. Often, the pictures include friends or family as a way to capture memories. However, there is a stigma of vanity attached to the selfies that are solely of one's self. Hence the name, "selfie". This stigma is amplified by the use of heavy filters to emphasize one's own beauty and to garner comments of approval from friends and family.
This #GivingTuesday, let's break the stigma by posting an #UNselfie on our social media pages! The point is to hide your face with your cause. If you choose to give to our scholarship fund, please consider making our cause your own by posting an #UNselfie.
