Giving Tuesday 2019

Do you love what we do at Tikkun and the Network of Spiritual Progressives? Do you have friends you think might love our work too? Here’s a great way to support us! #GivingTuesday is right around the corner (Tuesday, December 3rd) and we’d really appreciate it if you set up a fundraiser on your own Facebook page and invited your friends to donate—see below for more instructions.

We are so grateful for your ongoing support. If you have any questions about #GivingTuesday, please feel free to e-mail Chris at chris@tikkun.org or call him at 510-644-1200.

 

What you can do now: set up your fundraiser!

  • On the left-hand side of your Facebook news feed, you should see a list of pages—under “Explore,” click “Fundraisers.”
  • On the next page, click the button that says “Select Nonprofit.”

  • In the search field, enter “Tikkun – An Interfaith Magazine” or “Network of Spiritual Progressives” (there are a few other options if you just type Tikkun, so be sure to enter this full name) and select Tikkun or the Network of Spiritual Progressives. You’ll know it us because the profile photo is the Decolonization issue cover! The image for the Network of Spiritual Progressives is the logo of many overlapping hands.
  • Enter the amount you want to raise.
  • Enter an end date for the fundraiser.
  • On the next page, give your fundraiser a title and a description. We’d encourage you to include some of the language below (see below***).
  • You’ll then have the option to select one of our photos as a “cover photo” for your fundraiser. Once you’ve done this, hit “Create”!

***Example description for your fundraiser: I’m raising money for Tikkun and the Network of Spiritual Progressives, a non-profit organization and magazine that are a catalyst for long-term social change, empowering people and communities to heal the world by embracing revolutionary love, compassion, and empathy. They promote a caring society that protects the life support system of the planet and celebrates the Earth and the universe with awe and radical amazement. Please help me support Tikkun and the Network of Spiritual Progressives by donating for #GivingTuesday!
