Support Kids Now for #GivingTuesday
Like you, we want learning to be better. More meaningful, more creative, more intentional, more free. Anastasis Academy is a Colorado school that believes a real education helps kids understand who they are, what they value, how to appreciate others, and how to be a learner who is connected and connective. Anastasis is a place of exploration, deep thinking, tinkering, creative cultivation, action, and community. We are always so pleased to partner with those who share our values of character, community, agility, and imagination.
On December 3rd, we’re looking for those who want to join us in amplifying this movement of good during Giving Tuesday. #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. We, as consumers, have two days to get deals – Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday, is specially-designated for giving back and is a celebration of America’s greatest traditions: generosity, entrepreneurialism, community.
