KLRU Joins the Global #GivingTuesday Movement

KLRU has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.

Occurring this year on December 1, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.

As YOUR COMMUNITY supported PBS station, we ask you to join the movement and help promote our efforts! Whether you choose to give, become a personal fundraiser or share our social media posts – YOUR KLRU needs your support! Help us reach our goal of $30,000 and build community right here in Central Texas.

We encourage you to join the movement and choose KLRU as your organization to support on December 1st!
