Over the past few days, Black Friday and Cyber Monday kicked off the holiday shopping season. Today it’s something more meaningful, for the entire community–today is the official kickoff for the giving season, Giving Tuesday!

As has become tradition in the last few years, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving is “Giving Tuesday.” This day has become a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and commemorate generosity. By sending in a gift today, you will be a part of this movement for those wanting to make a difference.

Donations are so necessary for the work that we do here at NAMI North Carolina. Last year, your financial support helped us and our affiliates train new program leaders, have nearly 2,000 connections

with individuals from 91 different North Carolina counties

through our Helpline, and expand the reach of our free classes, support groups, and advocacy efforts across the state.

This year, we are aiming to raise $8,000 as part of Giving Tuesday. And thanks to an anonymous donor, every donation (up to $2,000) will be matched!

Help us meet our goal by donating here. Or you can text “NAMI” to
