First Black Friday, then Cyber Monday and now #Giving Tuesday! On December 3, 2013 the 2nd annual Giving Tuesday, a national day of giving driven through social media channels by nonprofits, for-profits, and individuals, will take place. Kokolulu Farm and Cancer Retreats is a partner in this national effort of giving and we ask you to join us by making a donation to Kokolulu so people who have been affected by cancer and do not have the funds to provide the therapy and inspiration they need, can still attend a transformative retreat with us in Hawaii.
We have set up an easy way for you to make a pledge or donation on our website (see left column of this page). The donation you make today will have a major impact upon the life of someone who is being affected by cancer. Maybe you or a loved one has experienced the power of Kokolulu’s Farm and Cancer Retreat Center.
Please Help Us Spread the Word
Finding strength, peace, and a plan to move forward are very powerful. Your help in spreading the word through your social media channels can help us reach others who may want to support the amazing work we are doing on the Big Island of Hawaii. Please use #GivingTuesday with @Kokululu on Twitter with the link back to our donate page or put the link into a status update on your Facebook or GooglePlus account. We REALLY appreciate the energy, effort and time you take to provide the gift of a cancer retreat for those affected by cancer.

History of Giving Tuesday
Started by the 92nd Street Y’s interim CEO Henry Timms, Giving Tuesday marks the opening day for the end-of-year-giving season, much like Black Friday and Cyber Monday marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season. After two days of getting, Timms wanted to encourage the country to give back. Launched in September 2012, Giving Tuesday became a sizable movement within just three months, and on November 27 of that year, the special day kicked off the giving season with a bang.
