Gloves that give: Ways to help others this #GivingTuesday712

Written by Katie Fourney    on November 24, 2020    in
Many local area businesses will be supporting #GivingTuesday712 to harness the power of good in Southwest Iowa. Businesses are getting creative in finding ways to assist others! Hear from Becca Wiggins with Dusted Charm on their plans for #GivingTuesday712 on December 1st.
 

What caused you to get involved in #GivingTuesday712? 

 
Giving back through time, talent or treasure has been part of the Dusted Charm “why” and mission since opening 2.5 years ago. The passion we have for giving back locally stems from the wonderful people in Southwest Iowa who rallied around my family in a time of significant need when we were faced with a devastating terminal diagnosis with our first-born child. My goal from that point forward was to someday create a local platform that would allow me to pay the selfless gift of giving forward. 
 

Pottawattamie County Community Foundation matches 20% for #GivingTuesday712

For #GivingTuesday712 on December 1, SHARE Omaha is thrilled to partner with Pottawattamie County Community Foundation (PCCF) to engage all Southwest Iowa nonprofits and community supporters.

To increase the power of the day, PCCF is generously adding a 20% match when donors use the code PCCF2020 at SHAREomaha.org, when the nonprofit adds to their PCCF endowment fund. This gift could add an additional $250,000 of support for Southwest Iowa organizations! 

The Council Bluffs metro helps one another, cares about each other. SHARE Omaha and PCCF believe that kind of optimism needs a celebration – a day with its own focus. Donna Dostal, president and CEO of Pottawattamie County Community Foundation, says she wants to inspire a giving spirit. “Generosity has many forms. Our community can grow its existing reputation for giving back on Giving Tuesday. We want to ignite that good.”

The legion of Do Gooders is growing as more individuals, families and businesses step up and declare they will do good for Giving Tuesday.

Across the metro, you are pledging to contribute an act of real-life good – volunteering with LFS 24 Hours of Impact, donating and surprising someone with kindness. We can’t wait to see you put positivity out in to our city, and watch it take over.
 
We asked, how will YOU do good on Dec. 3?

Some of you have said:
 
“(I’ll) help a stranger. It doesn’t take much to be polite and extend a helping hand.” – Helena

“Make donations to my favorite local nonprofits” – Karen

“Make treats for my neighbors” – Amy

“I plan to volunteer at New Visions!” – Kelsey

“Helping clean up my neighbor’s yard” – Rikki

As the presenting sponsor of #GivingTuesday712, TS Bank invites YOU to join the metro-wide, do good takeover on December 3rd!

Giving Tuesday helps to refocus our energy on the reason for the holiday season. The day was built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in countries around the world and millions of people have come together to champion the causes they believe in.

We are joining with SHARE Omaha to rally the metro community, including Southwest Iowa, around the common goal of doing good while celebrating and promoting all types of giving along. This is the time to learn about the critical work of metro area nonprofits and support their efforts.

We are thrilled that our TS Bank locations will serve as the official #GivingTuesday712 headquarters for Southwest Iowa activities.
