Join the movement this #GivingTuesday
Join millions of others Tuesday, November 27, 2018.
#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.
By giving in multiples of $18 you can join JFCS and the global movement this #GivingTuesday as we continue to “help people help themselves” right here in Jacksonville.
Why $18 in ’18?
Founded by Jewish rabbis in 1917, we continue to help the entire Jacksonville community, regardless of religious affilition, in the Jewish tradition of Tikkun Olam: repairing the world. The word chai in Judaism means life. The sum of the Hebrew letters that spell chai is 18. The number 18 is significant in Judaism because of its connection to life and hope. 2018 is the year of chai or the year of life.
