Seeking #GivingTuesday Ambassadors to spread the word on social media and in your community about the need help homeless citizens on the path to self-sufficiency in Morris County, NJ.

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Family Promise of Morris County (FPMC) is building awareness about the crisis of homelessness in Morris County NJ and seeking Ambassadors to share the message through #GivingTuesday. We have over 100 people on our waitlist currently, 6 years old is the average age of a shelter recipient and we believe ever child deserves a home.

Be an Ambassador, be a Champion for this cause. Share messages on social media with friends, families and the world. Let them know there are ways to make an impact. Simply sharing the message is awesome or options to get more involved is available. For those seeking to be a Super-Ambassador, volunteering 5-10 hours per week, we will provide you with training, a certificate and will be named on our media outreach, newsletter and website.
