Giving Tuesday Movement

Friends of RNWR

Until November 24th, the GivingTuesday movement is running #MyGivingStory, a new storytelling contest that will highlight acts of generosity that take place out of the public spotlight.

They are asking individuals across the country to share their personal reasons for giving, and then share those stories with their communities.

As a supporter of the Friends of the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge, we’d be honored if you would take this opportunity to reflect upon your commitment to our work.

The top 15 essays “liked” on Facebook will be sent to a distinguished panel of judges for final adjudication. Winners will be announced on #GivingTuesday December 1st!

Winners will receive GlobalGiving gift cards ranging from $100-500. The nonprofit they write about in their essay will receive $1,000-5,000 grants.

Upworthy will also develop and share articles featuring the two first-place winning stories.
