This #GivingTuesday,Support Our Black Community Organizations!
Join TOUCH and our phenomenal Sister Breastie organizations as we talk about their awesome work and how they are reaching and touching the Black community in places and spaces where our work needs to happen to really make a significant impact. The 42% higher mortality rate for Black women versus White women from breast cancer is just outrageous. We have #MuchWorkToDo to change this paradigm!
When you think about the upcoming #GivingTuesday and your year-end giving, make sure you invest in a meaningful way. Giving Tuesday’s mission is to be a “global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity.”
Get to know these game-changing organizations that are educating and inspiring Black women where they live, work, play and pray. They will gratefully use your radical generosity to make radical change.
