Giving Tuesday – Dec. 3
December 3 @ 12:01 am - 11:59 pm
Thanksgiving is for giving thanks for and with family and friends.
Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday are for getting gifts for others (and sometimes for yourself!).
Giving Tuesday is all about supporting community organizations and the work they do for the greater good.
Driven by our mission to make imagination a part of everyday learning, Big Thought is an impact education nonprofit dedicated to closing the opportunity gap for youth in Dallas and beyond. Founded in 1987, the organization began innovating education from its inception by bringing arts and cultural performances into classrooms at a time when the arts had been marginalized or even eliminated from public school curricula. The organization soon grew to serve children, educators, and families in more ways than its founders ever imagined. In 2004, the name Big Thought was adopted to reflect the broadened scope and vision.
Throughout our 30+ year history of innovation, Big Thought has become a national model in arts education, out of school time systems, summer learning and juvenile justice intervention. Now we’re one of 6 community partnerships in the U.S. helping scale national best practices in social and emotional learning.
