Giving Tuesday first started in November of 2012. With the post-Thanksgiving sales day, Black Friday and then the online version, Cyber Monday, charitable groups wanted to start a new holiday tradition — it’s called Giving Tuesday.
St. Paul will participate in our own #GivingTueFalconsDay by donating 10% of any funds donated to St. Paul’s Annual Falcon Fund on #GivingTuesday to our Haiti Fundraising Initiative . Your gift to St. Paul’s #GivingTueFalconsDay will allow St. Paul students the opportunity to sustain academic excellence, provide tuition assistance and scholarships for deserving St. Paul students as well as assist the Haitian Health Foundation, providing hot lunches to nearly 1,000 students in grades K-9 at the St. Pierre School in Jeremie. Since September of 2011, St. Paul initiated a community-wide outreach effort to reach beyond ourselves in the true spirit of our faith.
St. Paul students live our five core values everyday – one of them being Service – Giving of one’s self to help and support others. From collecting can goods for local food pantries to helping raise over $53,000 for the Haitian Health Foundation in the last five years.
Make sure to share our #GivingTueFalconsDay on social media on 11/28/2017! Donations will be accepted on our website all day that day!
Thank you again for your consideration!
