A Global Day of Giving
You’ve heard of Black Friday. You’ve heard of Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday is a global phenomenon! Started in 2012 by the 92nd St. Y in New York City, #GivingTuesday celebrates generosity by providing people everywhere with an opportunity to “give more, give smarter, and give great”. This global day of giving is always the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving and is intended to celebrate the true spirit of the holiday season by building support for charities who are working tirelessly to make this a better world.
In 2015, #GivingTuesday raised over $116,000,000 by 700,000 people in 70 countries!
This year on Tuesday, November 29, 2016, you can join thousands of people from around the world coming together to support non-profits and charity organizations around the globe!
The Butterfly Project is joining this global day of giving for the first time ever. We hope you’ll help us to make it a success!
Donations raised on #GivingTuesday will allow us to:
- provide our curriculum and butterfly kits at reduced prices or free to underserved students
- develop a comprehensive teacher training program to empower more educators to teach the difficult lessons of the Holocaust and make it relevant to problems in today’s society.

Help Us Reach Our Goals!
Help us reach our first goal by signing the pledge at the top of the page! Between today and November 28, we we’re asking people to pledge to donate to The Butterfly Project on #GivingTuesday! What happens when you pledge to donate? You’re telling us “Yes, I want to donate! And I will donate on November 29!” Our first goal is to get 200 people to pledge to donate!
Then, on November 29 we have some pretty big goals! We want to have 300 people donate on #GivingTuesday. We also want to have 25 new donors, which means donations from people who have never supported The Butterfly Project before!
We also have one special goal – we want to have 100 butterfly kits sponsored for underprivileged classrooms. Each $180 donated brings The Butterfly Project into the hands of 36 more students, often from schools with little to no budget for engaging programming such as this.
