After the heady consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it’s time to think about giving back, rather than taking. And that’s the whole thought behind the #GivingTuesday movement, which AJLI has officially joined!

Now in its second year, #GivingTuesday aims to create an international day of giving to kick off the giving season on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving.  (And some of our Leagues may be following closer to home through #GivingTuesdayUK, #GivingTuesdayCa and #DiaParaDar.)

It’s a great fit for The Junior League and our Mission. Every dollar donated via AJLI’s #GivingTuesday donation page ( will allow us to provide the training, resources, tools and support needed to empower women to lead change in their local communities and around the world.

But it’s also a great way for League members to extend the reach of The Junior League – and talk about what we do so well – by tweeting and retweeting and sharing from our Facebook page.

And don’t forget to include our #GivingTuesday donation page –

Why not go there now? (Every dollar is welcome!)
