GIVING TUESDAY is November 27, 2018



So what is Giving Tuesday?
Giving Tuesday is a day of giving to charity, observed on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. This year it is held on Nov 27. I love the concept of Giving Tuesday, and the way it invites us to take a breath and step away from the mad dash of Black-Friday-Cyber-Monday-must-buy-all-the-things for a moment to recenter ourselves in this season of gratitude and giving. This year, Sweet Pea Project has partnered with 8 local businesses to encourage you to open your hearts and give compassionately, and to offer our donors fun gifts to show our appreciation for all that you bring to our community! Check back soon as we unveil all the great gifts that our partners are sharing with those who choose to support Sweet Pea Project on this meaningful day of giving back. 
And thank you for being a part of it all.


How can I participate?
Sweet Pea Project will be gratefully accepting donations via Paypal (select Send To Friends & Family, since you aren't buying anything, and then use Stephanie@sweetpeaproject.org as the recipient), or mail a check to us at Sweet Pea Project, PO Box 10351, Lancaster, PA 17605-0351. Donations can also be made through our Facebook page using our NetworkForGood link. 

Donations must be made on Giving Tuesday, Nov 27. 
If you mail a check, please email us to let us know it is on the way.

In order to receive the gratitude gifts from our partners, please email Stephanie@sweetpeaproject.org with proof of your Giving Tuesday donation to Sweet Pea Project of $10 or more. Please be sure to include your name, mailing address, and email address. This must be sent in by midnight on Nov 27. Please email us with any questions.

What if you don't live local enough to Lancaster, PA to use the gift cards from these local businesses, but still want to be a part of all this beautiful giving on Giving Tuesday? You can take the giving one step forward and choose to donate your gratitude gifts! Simply email us to let us know you would like your gratitude gifts to be given out in random acts of kindness.


What will the Giving Tuesday donations be used for?
Sweet Pea Project is 100% volunteer run and donation funded, so your donation will allow us to continue to do the important work we have been doing for the past 10 years: funding the purchase and distribution of blankets and books for hospitals to give to newly bereaved parents and multiple community events for families who have experienced the death of a baby during pregnancy, infancy, or early childhood. Your donation will offer comfort, support, and gentle guidance to grieving families. We could not do any of this without you. Thank you so very much for your support.


Who are Sweet Pea Project's Giving Tuesday partners?
We are so excited to be able to partner with 8 fantastic local businesses for 2018's Giving Tuesday. We will be announcing the gifts each place is giving to our donors closer to the date, but we can finally share the businesses that we have chosen to partner with this year. They are: 
Thank you so much to each of these great local spots for their compassion and generosity!
