Dear friends,
I thank you for accommodating my son. I am very thankful—I can tell you…that [he] came home changed, freed from his unnatural reservedness and closed attitude which he had showed since coming back from overseas. He spoke with us, enjoyed the family and friends, even sang a song!”

Why the BA is participating in GivingTuesday on December 3rd

GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world.

This year, GivingTuesday falls on December 3, and the BA is participating. GivingTuesday harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world. GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together.

Follow our Facebook page as we will be posting more information starting mid-November.
