#GivingTuesday, Nov. 27, is a global, one-day event dedicated to the transformative power of generosity. Held each year on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday harnesses the power of social media and collaboration to help others. For the Gardner-Webb University family of students and parents, alumni, donors, faculty, staff and friends, #GivingTuesday fits beautifully with who we are as a university and what we value: serving others, sharing kindness and giving back to help our communities near and far.

Here on campus students will celebrate #GivingTuesday by participating in “Encouragement-in-a-Can,” to be held outside the Dover Campus Center cafeteria during the lunch rush. Students can write messages of hope and encouragement on canned goods, which will then be donated to local ministries. This effort is a perfect blend of GWU’s motto—Pro Deo et Humanitate—and the spirit of #GivingTuesday.

Today, please show your support of GWU students with a #GivingTuesday gift. Each dollar raised goes directly to scholarships. You can help students pursue their dreams, serve others and graduate on time.

Let’s make this #GivingTuesday the best one ever! Thank you for your generosity.
