Giving Tuesday Reason and Request

November 29, 2016

Special Giving Tuesday Message

Celebrating its fifth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. It is proof that social media has had a positive impact on the world as we know it. Giving Tuesday is celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. It kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, Giving Tuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year.

heartonfireThis is the first time in my 22 year entrepreneurial career that I am personally participating in #GivingTuesday. I typically market events, memberships and my company Women TIES to get more women to buy from each other and create a stronger financial buying circle for women; but today is special, because today is Giving Tuesday and I need your financial support.Instead of my written word to explain why I need your assistance, I taped a video message for you to listen to with an open heart – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdKVm_Pyp-g

kathrinetracyoswegoI know you will receive many giving requests today and all causes have purpose and significance. I can’t say the organization I am raising money for is more deserving than any other, but I ask you to consider donating so I can help raise money for 261 Fearless.Org and to run in the 2017 Boston Marathon with legendary Kathrine Switzer who will celebrate her 50th Anniversary of being the first woman to officially register and run that race. I will bring women entrepreneur’s dreams with me to this “feminist moment” as I line up at the start of the Boston Marathon line with Kathrine so we can all cross the finish line together.

To make a donation to my Boston Marathon Run and 261Fearless.org, go to this link.

tracyrunningI can’t run without your financial and emotional support. I promise you the donation is going to a very worthy cause about “women supporting women” in life and running. I remain committed to you and women everywhere. Thank you for your generosity today.
