Dr. Barbara Seniors Harkins Foundation joins the global #GivingTuesday movement

Homestead, FL – November 2, 2017: Dr. Barbara Seniors Harkins Foundation joins the global #GivingTuesday movement for the second year and marks the beginning of our End-of-Year Campaign. Our goal this year will be to raise twice the amount of money we raised last year. The money raised will go towards paying for a space for our two main programs: our After-school Book Club and our Summer Film Camp. We are also looking for a donation in the form of a space to use for our programs. We have outgrown our old space, and the safety and comfort of our campers and staff are of the utmost importance to us.

Dr. Barbara Seniors Harkins Foundation has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. We will be accepting online donations. Occurring this year on November 28, 2017, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.

Our organization is interested in spreading the word about how we are giving back to the community by providing extra-curricular media programs such as Photography, Film, and Reading, with expansion taking place in the upcoming year, and that is why we decided to join #GivingTuesday.

“This is our second year in participating and we are very excited about the opportunity to let others know about our Foundation and what we do,” says board member Alex Tengco.

If you are interested in donating to our foundation on November 28, 2017, please visit our website at: www.barbaraseniorsharkinsfoundation.org/givingtuesday.
