Giving Tuesday was started in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation to harness the power of generosity to change lives. We see this power in action every day in our gym on the faces of our clients. The generosity of our many donors has enabled Push to Walk to provide specialized training that can help individuals with paralysis live more fulfilling lives.
Giving Tuesday gives us an opportunity to do more. Celebrated on Tuesday following Thanksgiving in the U.S. and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many individuals will focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
Push to Walk is participating in #GivingTuesday on November 27 and we ask you to be part of it. Take a look at our videos by searching #PushUpsForPushToWalk or visiting our social media pages. Share them to raise awareness for our organization! Or do a few push-ups yourself and send us a video. Email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
And please, donate what you can. Be part of this global giving movement.
Whatever you do, we assure you it will make a difference. Our clients work hard year-round to maintain their physical health and wellness. Your contribution to our unique individualized program of intensive exercise helps our clients regain the ability to do daily tasks that are usually taken for granted.
The staff, clients and board are deeply grateful for your support and we wish you the happiest and healthiest of holidays.
