WHAT IS GIVING TUESDAY?
We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Now, we have Giving Tuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
Through #GivingTuesdayCLT, a social media campaign, SHARE Charlotte and many local nonprofits are partnering together again this year to make a positive impact in OUR city.
This year, the giving season starts on November 10 and goes through December 1. We are excited to be participating in #GivingTuesdayCLT with SHARE Charlotte! Make a gift to the Carolina Thread Trail during this period and you’ll help us earn a percentage of matching funds given to SHARE Charlotte from area organizations.

YOUR #GIVINGTUESDAYCLT GIFT CREATES TRAILS IN OUR REGION.
The Carolina Thread Trail is working to connect the region through a network of 1,590 miles of trails. When you donate to the Thread Trail on Giving Tuesday, you help us accomplish one of our goals, the North-South Spine, which brings 140 miles of recreation, transportation, and conservation to you.
The North-South Spine is an essential corridor in the Carolina Thread Trail Master Plan, running from Great Falls, SC to Statesville, NC. It will connect residents to historical and recreational attractions and bring people closer to each other and nature.
