Tuesday, December 2, 2014 is international #GivingTuesday, a day to give back. Please keep the Rice Northwest Museum in your giving plans for this year.
The event is the day after Cyber Monday and is designed to encourage giving to others. The supporters recommending giving freely of your time volunteering, giving to charity, and giving back.
On Thanksgiving, we give thanks. On Black Friday, we give deals. On Cyber Monday, we get online. On Giving Tuesday, we give back.
And you know what the greatest, coolest, most innovative part about this whole movement is? It doesn’t matter how much you give, or how much you give, only that you give. Join in. Be part of a movement.
You may give to the museum by:
- Donating to help keep the museum the best in the Pacific Northwest and globally
- Become a member and join the Rice NW Museum family of supporters
- Sponsor an event, rock or mineral, or an exhibit at the museum
- Volunteer to help with the many projects and activities around the museum for a few hours or on a regular basis
It takes a few dollars or hours to make a huge difference in the museum’s ability to offer free and low cost programs for school children from around the Pacific Northwest, local, national, and international educational outreach programs, to offer extraordinary exhibits and special programs, and introduce thousands of people to the joy of rock collecting and preservation and natural sciences.
The project is a United Nations Foundation program.
