Why Give this Tuesday?

The holiday rush is about to start! You know how it goes: you’ve shopped on Black Friday, you’ve ordered online on Cyber Monday. This year, give generously on #GivingTuesday!

What is #GivingTuesday?

A movement to create a national day of giving to kick off the giving season added to the calendar on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The second annual GivingTuesday is on December 3, 2013. In the same way that retail stores take part in Black Friday, #GivingTuesday was started as a way for the giving community to come together.

Why is Tread Lightly! a part of #GivingTuesday?

As a nonprofit organization, Tread Lightly! relies on the generosity of charitable donations to support its national education and stewardship programs. Tread Lightly! is a part of the #GivingTuesday movement to encourage charitable giving at the start of the annual holiday season.

If I give to Tread Lightly! on Tuesday, December 3rd, how will the money be used?

All donations Tread Lightly! receives on Tuesday, December 3rd will will go directly to the Poison Spider Mesa Trail Restoration for Recreation project. Poison Spider Mesa Trail is one of Moab’s premier 4WD trails. In order to ensure future access and opportunities, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is working to minimize trail conflicts by installing a system of steel cable and posts, but needs your help to make this project a reality.

#GivingTuesday is a new day for giving back. This year, be part of a national celebration of our great tradition of generosity. Make a gift today.
