Whether shopping on-line, giving through your employer, or making a valuable donation, there are so many ways to take this giving Tuesday to give to the lives and care of children at MHCO. Following the busiest shopping days of the year and getting those holiday deals, you can provide your own special giving opportunity for a child at MHCO. And the ways are easy, on-line, and available now and throughout the holiday season.

#GivingTuesday is a movement, built by people around the world, to celebrate giving of all kinds. It is celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.), Black Friday and Cyber Monday; this year it falls on November 29, 2016. This movement is the result of the collective power of a unique blend of partners—nonprofits large and small; businesses and corporations; schools and universities; civic campaigns in cities, states and regions; and families and individuals—to inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities and contribute in countless ways to the causes they believe in. Everyone has something to give.   Take part in Giving Tuesday 2016 by supporting MHCO and its kids.  You can visit www.givingtuesday.org/ for more information on this year’s event.
