Seventeen local non-profit organizations have joined the #GivingTuesday global movement.  Following the widely recognized shopping events of Black Friday, Small Town Saturday, and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday links individuals world-wide with causes to strengthen communities and encourage charitable giving (typically online). Since all of the participating local organizations are located in Shiawassee County, the local effort this year is called #raiseUPshiawassee.

And Friends of the Shiawassee River has joined this effort.

“The Friends’ financial target for #raiseUPshiawassee is $1,800 to help fund our stream team program,” said Interim Executive Director, Lorraine Austin. “The Cook Family Foundation already has helped us get almost 1/3rd of the way, with an online challenge match of $500.  We’re counting on our Friends to help us get the rest of the way there!”
