Ensure Florida’s Dependent Children the Futures They Deserve

THE FLORIDA GUARDIAN AD LITEM FOUNDATION JOINS GLOBAL #GIVINGTUESDAY MOVEMENT

[Tallahassee] – Giving Tuesday, December 3, 2019, is a worldwide initiative to  use the power of people and organizations to make the earth a better place to live, day by day.  It was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good works.  Over the past 7 years, the idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.  After Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is intended as a day to focus on giving of yourself.

The Florida Guardian ad Litem Foundation offers several ways to contribute to your community and the world around you:

  • Donate – Your financial contribution is a sound investment that will help expand programs and recruit and train volunteers.
  • Volunteer- This is one cause where the actions of a single individual can have a profound impact. You can be an integral part of the solution.
  • Volunteer Your Legal Services- Register for the Guardian ad Litem’s Pro-Bono Attorney List and learn more about Pro-Bono opportunities.
  • Share Why You Give- When you share your generosity, you inspire others to do the same. Share how and why you’re giving back on #GivingTuesday by posting on social media.

“By joining this movement you are helping us to provide a positive future for Florida’s most vulnerable children,” said Guardian ad Litem Executive Director Alan Abramowitz.

“Every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give,” said Florida Guardian ad Litem Foundation Interim-CEO, Sonia Valladares.
