Giving Tuesday (aka #givingtuesday) taking place worldwide on December 3rd, is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage giving and to celebrate generosity. Every year, on Giving Tuesday, millions of people across the globe mobilize to show up, give back, and change their communities. The goal is to create a massive wave of generosity that lasts well beyond that day and touches every person on the planet.
This #GivingTuesday Waterville Creates! and members of the greater Waterville community will be sharing stories of how the arts have lifted their lives to make this a day of giving in support of the arts. We believe that the arts have power — the power to strengthen community bonds, drive a robust local economy, and enrich lives through creative expression. By participating in our Giving Tuesday fundraising effort, you can sustain outstanding arts and cultural programming that is accessible to all.
Want to get involved? On Tuesday, December 3rd create a #GivingTuesdayWTVL campaign on Facebook in support of your favorite Waterville Creates! organization – the Maine Film Center, the Waterville Opera House, or Waterville Creates! and encourage your friends and family to give. It only takes minutes and your efforts will be amplified by all those who choose to participate — every dollar raised helps support the arts in Waterville.
We’re also hosting a Thank You event for our incredible community of supporters and volunteers at Railroad Square Cinema on Tuesday, December 3rd starting at 5:15pm featuring an awesome film – Jonathan Demme’s Stop Making Sense – one of our all-time favorites – and free food from Grand Central Café, along with Happy Hour specials at the concessions stand!
