Kokolulu Farm and Cancer Retreats has joined #GivingTuesday, a first of its kind effort that will harness the collective power of a unique blend of partners—charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.
Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday will inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support and help create a better world.
Taking place December 3, 2013 – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – #GivingTuesday will harness the power of social media to create a national moment around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping.
Kokolulu Farm and Cancer Retreats joined #GivingTuesday because it believes that we need to support the Causes we all believe in thus building a stronger community, county, state and country. We support a focus on making a positive difference in the lives of those we care about.
Please give generously to your favorite local charitable organization. For more information visit Giving Tuesday’s web site: http://community.givingtuesday.org/News

Seeing an opportunity to channel the generous spirit of the holiday season to inspire action around charitable giving, a group of friends and partners, led by the 92nd Street Y, NY, came together to find ways to promote and celebrate the great American tradition of giving.
Thought leaders in philanthropy, social media and grassroots organizing joined with 92nd Street Y to explore what is working in modern philanthropy and how to expand these innovations throughout the philanthropic sector. The concept gained steam, and by bringing together a group of founding partners—including the United Nations Foundation, DonorsChoose.org, Mashable, Blackbaud, charity: water, GlobalGiving, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), Kiva, Darden Restaurant Group, Groupon, Unilever and VentureThree.
From the staff at Kokolulu Farm and Cancer Retreats in Hawi, Hawaii– We wish you, your family and friends a blessed holiday season
