What can I do? Black History Month 2023 in the Omaha metro
Make Black History Month about engagement for the month of February. These next 28 days are the time to be intentional about learning from the past, listening to what’s happening now and planning your support for today forward.
Here at SHARE Omaha, alongside our partners at SHARE Iowa,we are celebrating the generosity of our region on Giving Tuesday. You raised over $4.2 million dollars for our local nonprofits! In addition, you gave to nonprofits that were new-to-you, more than 1,800 times. The nonprofits you supported also recruited over one hundred new volunteers and received over 27,000 wish list items.

I have had a blast working with SHARE Omaha as their Giving Tuesday Intern this past semester, learning valuable skills and working towards strengthening my community through positive work. This was my first Giving Tuesday, and I am glad that I was able to spend it highlighting the meaning of generosity and what it means to give back.
For the first time ever, a group of local Giving Tuesday Ambassadors are prepping to hit the streets on November 29th! These kind-hearted folks have spent the last few weeks asking themselves what they care about, what change they want to see, and what they can do to move the metro forward this Giving Tuesday. It’s been inspiring to hear about what led them to choose their projects!
We have so much great news to share from our nonprofit partners about their amazing work. But, we'd love to hear from you. Let us know if you have stories you'd like to tell and we'll make you a guest blogger!!
