The holiday season is almost upon us! Many of us mark this time of year by eating special foods (pumpkin pie and potato latkes), joining together with our families to celebrate holidays (Thanksgiving, Hannukah, and many more), and giving back to those less fortunate in our communities.

For the past four years, a global community has joined together to celebrate this season of giving with #GivingTuesday.

#GivingTuesday is a global celebration that takes place on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving to connect diverse groups of individuals, communities, and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.

Perlman is thrilled to participate in this year’s #GivingTuesday celebration on December 1st! This #GivingTuesday, we have a goal of raising $2,800, which would help send a rookie to camp this summer.

How is Perlman participating in #GivingTuesday?

Perlman is committed to ensuring that no camper is ever turned away from a summer at camp due to financial need. All year long, Perlman raises money for scholarship through our Annual Campaign. This year, we are participating in #GivingTuesday to help raise awareness of our need for scholarship dollars. As we countdown to the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, we are reminding our community of the need for scholarship and asking for their participation.

From now until #GivingTuesday on December 1st, there are many ways that you can participate and help us #GiveCamp!

  1. Share our #GivingTuesday posts on Facebook and Instagram to help spread the word about our campaign
  2. Talk with your family and friends about what is #GivingTuesday, and how Perlman is participating
  3. On December 1st, make a donation to support our #GivingTuesday campaign at
  4. Share our on your own social media accounts, so others can support our goal of sending a rookie to camp!

Have questions about #GivingTuesday or an idea about how to share Perlman’s campaign? Send me an email at

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season, and a meaningful #GivingTuesday.
