Parents for Public Schools joins the Global #GivingTuesday Movement

The National Office of Parents for Public Schools (PPS) has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Occurring this year on December 1, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and follows the widely recognized shopping events, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Millions shopped, millions bought--now millions can donate to charities and causes they support.

PPS has joined the #GivingTuesday movement through its You Care, We Care campaign.  Through You Care, We Care, PPS strives to enlist the support of those who, like us, believe that there is no more important work than enabling children to reach their full potential by providing high quality public education.
