Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday!
From the Giving Tuesday website: "On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity."
YALSA is participating, for the third year in a row. From the YALSA blog: "This year will be YALSA’s third year in participating, and the Financial Advancement Committee’s (FAC) goal is to raise at least $4000 to send four...yes FOUR...YALSA members to National Library Legislative Day in Spring 2015." More details are at the YALSA blog.
And to cut to the chase, how to give? Again, from the YALSA blog: "YALSA has made it so easy this year! Not only can you log onto the ala.org and donate the traditional way, but now you can text to donate! All you have to do is text ALA TEENALA to this number: 41518 to make a $10 donation to YALSA. It couldn’t be easier!"
If you want to find out more about donating to YALSA, the Give to YALSA website has information about how to donate, what YALSA does with the donations, etc.
Edited to add: If donating online, there are a few ways to direct your YALSA donation. I checked with YALSA about which one to select, and they said "The Friends option will go towards funding the Legislative Day stipends."
