Giving Tuesday is November 27th. You’ve likely seen the #GivingTuesday on your Facebook, Instagram or Twitter as the global movement has grown fueled by the power of social media to create an international day of giving as everyone kicks off the charitable season. Giving Tuesday is the annual Tuesday that always follows Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Light Up To Live, fueled by the passion to help our Military community, encourages you to participate in #GivingTuesday by lighting up a Veteran’s life! The Light Up to Live Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity dedicated to assisting military men and women in active duty and those returning home. Light Up to Live offers monetary support and life-changing assistance to those suffering with conditions such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). This mission to assist Veterans is captured in a documentary called Light Up to Live: The Movie. It reveals insights into the lives of American Veterans who struggle with numerous battlefield injuries, the drug-free options they can utilize and their journey to regain hope and health.
