Giving Tuesday | 3 Ways to Give

Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday, and we are going to do something radical—ask you to give.

What is Giving Tuesday, you ask? It’s the philanthropic answer to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and its goal is to help support important causes and nonprofits around the world. On this Giving Tuesday, we are hoping you will support the Rustic Pathways Foundation, which in turn will help fund the foundation’s 6 service initiatives. The six causes range from educating youth in Peru, Cambodia, and Thailand, to building homes in the batey communities of the Dominican Republic, all of which you can read more about on the foundation’s website. The unifying factor between all six is that they are incredible causes that need funding so that they can continue making a positive impact in our global community.

So on this Giving Tuesday, we hope you consider supporting the foundation through one of these three ways to give:

Donate to the Rustic Pathways Foundation
No amount is too small, and 100% of the donations goes directly to supporting our initiatives. Donations truly keep these projects going and you can choose to specifically support one of our projects, or donate to the foundation as a whole. You can donate to the foundation here.

Fundraise for the Foundation
Create a fundraising page for the Rustic Pathways Foundation (it’s super easy), share your story with friends and family, and raise funds for a great cause. Like with regular donations, you can choose to specifically support one of our projects, or raise funds for the foundation as a whole, which will then be allocated to the various projects. You can create your own fundraising page here.

Shop at Artisan Connect
Our partner business works with artisan collectives to make sure they receive fair wages for their crafts, and on Giving Tuesday, 15% of your purchase will be donated to the Rustic Foundation. Use promo code Rustic15 at checkout to donate to the foundation while buying beautiful products. We love this Alpaca travel set from Peru.

Thank you for supporting the Rustic Pathways Foundation, and no matter who you support on Giving Tuesday, we encourage you to support a cause or organization you care about, as even the smallest donation helps make a difference. Let’s make Giving Tuesday the new Black Friday.
