Giving Tuesday is here! While Thanksgiving is about being with loved ones and pausing to give thanks for the many blessings God has given us, Giving Tuesday is a chance to shift our attention on our hopes for the future. What a great way to end Thanksgiving and move forward into the Christmas season!
For us, this day is all about raising awareness for creation care and hearing from people like you! This year, there are 3 ways to get involved:
1. Share a video or #unselfie
Throughout the day EEN staff will be going live on Facebook to talk about creation care and why the work of EEN is near and dear to our hearts and a core element of our faith. The best part? You can join us! Post a video or go live to tell YOUR friends why the work of EEN and stewarding God’s creation matters to you. Tag us and use #CreationCare so we can share your video.
Not the video type but want to post something? Take an unselfie! This is just a picture about something you care deeply about it with an explanation why. This could be a national park you’re exploring, your grandkids, or any other thing related to God’s creation and stewardship. This is a fun way to talk about your passions, engage your friends, and help us to raise awareness.
2. Host your own Facebook fundraiser
Take it a step further and ask your friends to consider giving to EEN. A Facebook fundraiser is a great tool to draw your friends into the movement and share about your own giving. On Tuesday, the Gates Foundation will match all donations for our ministry up to $50,000. So, every time you or a friend gives the gift will be doubled. This is the perfect time to give.

3. Give on Facebook for double the impact
Last but not least, you can participate in Giving Tuesday by sowing into the work of EEN. As we mentioned earlier, your gift will be doubled when you give via Facebook’s secure online donation center. They are also waiving fees, so 100% of your gift does directly to help us continue to educate and inspire fellow Christians. Head to our page and find the donate button under the cover photo to give and have your gift matched!
