Giving Tuesday, or the International Day of Giving, was started in 2012 by the United Nations Foundation as a response to the commercialization of the post-Thanksgiving season. The idea is for families, after their holiday and shopping frenzy, to reflect on how they can help others in their community and afar. This effort is almost entirely an online campaign and the same is true in our Stanwood-Camano community. Since 2015, SCAF (Stanwood Camano Area Foundation) has been organizing our own Day of Giving, which we loving call SC Give.
SC Give is a 24-hour online giving event to support local non-profit projects that provide basic needs and enhance the quality of life in our community.
