Celebrate #GivingTuesday with FamilyAlbum and DonorsChoose
This GivingTuesday, we’re trying something new!
On December 1, every donation to every project on DonorsChoose will be doubled with a match led by FamilyAlbum. The match event kicks off at 7:00 AM Eastern on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, commonly known as GivingTuesday.
“We’re so grateful for FamilyAlbum’s support for our teachers, particularly on one of the biggest giving days of the year,” said Charles Best, founder of DonorsChoose. “Considering the unprecedented challenges teachers and students have faced this school year, FamilyAlbum’s donation will help provide resources to keep kids learning, whether online or in the classroom.”
GivingTuesday actually marks the second partnership this year between FamilyAlbum and DonorsChoose. Our first match event focused on supporting distance learning as part of our larger COVID-19 relief effort.
“This school year continues to be incredibly difficult for children, teachers, and parents,” said our founder Kenji Kasahara. “This GivingTuesday, we wanted to do something special to show our deep appreciation for everyone helping to keep students learning during the pandemic—including students themselves. Together with DonorsChoose, we hope to make a difference for teachers and families across the country.”
