KIYOKO AKELIA STATEN YOUTH INSTITUTE Joins the Global #GivingTuesday Movement

 

NORTH LAS VEGAS, NEVADA,
November 27, 2017 – KIYOKO AKELIA STATEN YOUTH INSTITUTE, INC.
has joined the #GivingTuesday movement, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. This year will be the institute’s first year to participate in #GivingTuesday and it has set a $10,000 fundraising goal for the duration of the institute’s end of year fundraising campaign, which ends December 31, 2017.

 

Occurring this year on November 28, 2017, #GivingTuesday is a movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses, and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. In 2016, the fifth year of #GivingTuesday, millions of people in 98 countries came together to give back and support the causes they believe in. Over $177 million was raised online to benefit a tremendously broad range of organizations, and much more was given in volunteer hours, donations of food and clothing, and acts of kindness. It is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the US) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.

 

“The event kicks off the holiday giving season and inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, to give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world,” says Dr. K. Staten, Founder & President of KIYOKO AKELIA STATEN YOUTH INSTITUTE, Inc. “#GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts and that they mean even more when we give together.”


Starting November 28th at 12:00 a.m., KIYOKO AKELIA STATEN YOUTH INSTITUTE supporters
can visit Facebook at www.facebook.com/kasyouthinstitute or the website at www.kasyouthinstitute.com/donate to make a donation as part of #KASYouthGivingTuesday. There will be Weekly Tuesday Events leading up to December 31, 2017. Thanks to a generous donor, all donations made between 12:00 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. on November 28, 2017, will be matched dollar for dollar.

 

“We have been incredibly inspired by the generosity in time, efforts and ideas that have brought our concept for a worldwide movement into reality,” said Henry Timms, founder of #GivingTuesday and executive director of 92Y. “As we embark on our sixth year of #GivingTuesday, we are encouraged by
the early response from partner’s eager to continue making an impact in this global conversation.”
