Women’s Housing Coalition is once again taking a part in the global movement that is #GivingTuesday on November 29th, 2016. Giving Tuesday is a day of giving back that takes place on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. On this day, nonprofits across the globe ask supporters to come together to support their cause and give back, whether that be with their voice, their time or with a donation. On November 29th, join us in the movement by using the hashtag #GivingTuesday to explain how you’re contributing on that day.
In the weeks leading up to #GivingTuesday, we at WHC would love to hear your own stories about how Women’s Housing Coalition has impacted your life, directly or indirectly. Contact us with your stories and take part by using the hashtag #IheartWHC to share! You can also use the official Giving Tuesday story hashtag, #MyGivingStory, to share personal experiences about WHC to the community! In 2015, over 800 people shared a #MyGivingStory and we would love to see some WHC stories in the mix. Another way that you can share your Giving Tuesday experience is by posting an #UnSelfie (a selfless selfie) as a powerful way to show how you’re giving and, more importantly, why you are giving.
There are so many different ways you can help to support WHC’s #GivingTuesday movement. We welcome all types of volunteers and have many different, fun activities that you can help us with!

Donations are always welcome and we accept monetary and household/personal item donations. For a complete list, click here.
Also, remember that your voice and the power of sharing is so important. Sharing our mission to your network is a powerful tool that helps get the word out about Women’s Housing Coalition. Without support from wonderful people like you, WHC wouldn’t be where we are today! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for more information and announcements leading up to Giving Tuesday. What’s most important about Giving Tuesday is to show your care and concern for others. We hope that includes the Women’s Housing Coalition but please do your part to help make the world a better, safer place for everyone.
