Giving Tuesday

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, November 29th, 2016, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. We take this opportunity to rally for the Cape Fear River and advocate for it’s preservation. We are citizens of the Cape Fear Community. We drink the water, play in the water, make  livings from and eat what comes from the water. The Cape Fear flows through all of our hearts and bodies. Help protect where we eat, drink, make a living and play this year by giving to Cape Fear River Watch. It’s the gift that keeps on giving to all of your future generations. Invest in your future today – make a donation to the Cape Fear River here!
