#GivingTuesday 2017

November 27, 2017

Children at the Casita Maria Center for Arts and Education are bowing, stomping and vocalizing…and some are even pressing.  All that is music talk for playing the violin, dancing, singing and piano playing.  Casita Maria is music, arts and so much more.  We are building tomorrow’s leaders. When a child enters Casita’s doors they are coached, nurtured and supported.  They are taught self-reliance and responsibility, all while learning the joy of music.

 

This is what you make possible every time you donate to our programs.  Today, on #Giving Tuesday, share your joy of music with the children of the South Bronx and East Harlem and watch us create the leaders of the future.


Entering its sixth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy.
