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

A note from TS Bank: Join the #GivingTuesday712 movement!

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. 

The challenge for you, your company and your friends:
