Giving Tuesday
Nov 29 all-day

Show your support for VINE on Tuesday, November 29, National Giving Day!
Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving. To encourage donors’ generosity, Facebook is waiving all fees from donations made on Facebook during Giving Tuesday. All proceeds raised that day will go towards our Birthday Card Program. Each month VINE sends birthday cards to older adults in the community. Often we hear our cards are the only ones some people get. Help us spread joy and cheer throughout the year!
