GivingTuesday, taking place December 3rd, is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage giving and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Every year, on GivingTuesday, millions of people across the globe (almost 60 countries) mobilize to show up, give back, and change their communities.
This year ABC Hopes is a part of the global movement-GivingTuesday. The goal is to create a wave of generosity that lasts well beyond that day, to support ABC Hopes efforts throughout the year.
“ABC Hopes is not looking for a cure, we are looking to provide solutions within the community to get individuals with intellectual disabilities involved. Too often these members of our community get cast away and forgotten. We want to create a different tomorrow for these wonderful individuals,” Katie Moore, Founder of ABC Hopes.
ABC Hopes' mission is to empower individuals with intellectual disabilities to contribute to society in a positive manner by giving them opportunities that develop their social, physical, and educational skills. We will be accomplishing our mission by training our participants to operate a produce stands, participate in our fitness program, and various community events.
