New Hope Celebrates Joins #GivingTuesday on November 29th, 2022 with 3rd Annual "I Gave a Buck" Challenge

This global giving movement has been driven by individuals, charities, businesses and communities across the U.S. and countries around the world.

New Hope Celebrates (NHC) is kicking off the 3rd year of its “I Gave a Buck” Challenge for #GivingTuesday, occurring on November 29th, 2022. #GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been driven by individuals, charities, businesses and communities across the U.S. and countries around the world. Just as Black Friday kicks off the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season. #GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and support their communities. NHC is a non-profit organization with an all volunteer board.  It depends on the generosity of partners and donations from the community to be able to bring social, educational and historic events throughout the year, including their annual Pride Parade and Festival each May and annual High Heel Drag Race part of OUT in October.  Through #GivingTuesday and the “I Gave a Buck” Challenge, this year NHC has a fundraising goal of $3,500.  All funds raised will support NHC and NHC History efforts in 2023.
