Show Native American Kids Your Generosity this #GivingTuesday

   By Helen Oliff

The holiday shopping rush is on, but don’t’ forget: #GivingTuesday and #GiveNative day is tomorrow, November 28. It’s your once-a-year chance to profoundly boost your favorite nonprofits and causes! The economy this year seems uncertain, but generosity is abundant. That’s a blessing for so many like the Native American children who need new coats this year.

That’s right. Here at Partnership With Native Americans (PWNA), our #GivingTuesday goal is coats for kids! With your support, we aim to give new winter coats to 2,800 Native children in kindergarten through grade 6.

Remember Native Americans

A 2019 study by the Brookings Institute shows poverty rates among American Indian and Alaska Native children have consistently exceeded 40% for almost the past 30 years. In fact, Native American children are three times as likely as Whites to live in deep poverty (i.e., family income less than 50 percent of the poverty threshold).

Just $35 can provide a warm, new coat for an Indigenous child. This can be an enormous relief for the many families who are struggling financially in remote reservation communities.

And that’s not all… Right along with you, Joshua Arce, our President & CEO, will match your #GivingTuesday donations dollar for dollar up to $10,000. The deadline to donate is 11:59 PM on November 28, 2023.

Spread the Word This #GivingTuesday

Now recognized globally as a day of “doing good,” Giving Tuesday and #GiveNative day remind us of the joy of giving and how rallying together creates a bigger impact. Everyone has something to give, and we hope you will join us. Learn more on our landing page and donate here:

After you donate, don’t be shy about sharing your generosity online. Although some of you like to keep giving private, you can be a force for good by inspiring others to give as well. Together, we can make 2023 a year Native American children will remember.
