In just a few weeks, millions of compassionate people—like you—will celebrate Giving Tuesday. Falling on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving here in the United States, Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable giving season and celebrates the valuable work of charities big and small … and the generous donors who support them. This year, Giving Tuesday is Tuesday, November 27th.
A generous group of donors dedicated to stabilizing global population has promised a dollar for dollar match for ALL gifts made through midnight on Giving Tuesday, up to $7,000.
This year marked a milestone for Population Connection and our movement, as we celebrated 50 years of advocacy and education to combat runaway population growth (you can read more about this anniversary here). Even so, this wasn’t a year for looking back, but moving forward, as we threw all of our resources and energy towards ramping up our programs to promote contraceptive access, defend reproductive rights, and preserve natural resources. Thanks to the support of incredible members like you, together we:
- Gathered 350 population activists in Washington D.C. for our annual Capitol Hill Days lobbying event, where they urged their elected officials to support the Global HER Act and bring an end to Trump’s Global Gag Rule.
- Fielded more than 2,700 videos submissions to our annual World of 7 Billion student video contest. More than 5,000 students from 50 countries, including 44 U.S. states and territories, participated in this year’s contest—representing thousands of young people from around the globe who are now more aware of the complicated connections between population and some of the world’s most pressing challenges.
- Mobilized thousands of dedicated Population Connection members like you to raise awareness in your own communities, helping more Americans make the “population connection” between population growth and the issues you care most about. (You can find out how to get more involved with us here!)
We believe that stabilizing human population is vital to solving the direst problems facing our globe today. And together, we’ll keep fighting for a more just and sustainable world.
I hope you’ll consider supporting us this giving season—and on Giving Tuesday, your gift will be DOUBLED by a generous pool of Population Connection donors. Your support will help Population Connection advocate for universal, affordable access to reproductive health care; to educate tomorrow’s leaders about global population challenges; and to mobilize more Americans to take action for progressive policies to end rapid population growth. Thank you!
