Thankful for my STARs - Giving Tuesday 2021

#GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

You can show your generosity in a variety of ways during #GivingTuesday⁠—whether it’s helping a neighbor, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, or giving to causes.  Every act of generosity counts.

This year for Giving Tuesday, STAR aims to raise $25,000 during the month of November.  These funds will directly benefit STAR clients, who are survivors of sexual trauma.

We would also like to share the spirit of gratitude this holiday season, and we want to hear from YOU!  What are you thankful for?  Tell us!
