After a long weekend full of shopping and sales, it’s time to give back! Communities around the world are celebrating #GivingTuesday, a day for families, businesses and charities to come together and give back to the places they call home.
In our community, the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation is once again hosting a Facebook contest that will award one local organization $5,000.
The theme of this year’s contest is focused around organizations helping children and families. Participating organizations that have a chance to win are: The Relief Zone, Child Advocacy Program, Court Appointed Special Advocates of Chautauqua County, Community Helping Hands and St. Susan Center.
Beginning Dec. 2, Facebook users must first “Like” the Community Foundation by visiting, facebook.com/crcfonline, then opening their photo album, #GivingTuesday2014. Each organization has submitted a photo and caption that best describes their mission. Users can then “Like” their favorite organization-or all five if they can’t pick just one. The organization’s photo with the most likes by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 9 will be the winner. Click here to go directly to the album!
