Bridges to Independence is looking for superstar ambassadors to make our Giving Tuesday a success! We know you can be the person to make our Giving Tuesday the best one yet!

Giving Tuesday is on December 1st this year and it is a global movement to encourage charitable giving right at the start of the holiday season. This year, Bridges will be starting our campaign early and reaching out to our community and beyond in the hopes to get more eyes on us! This year, as well, is more important than ever because of the negative effect COVID-19 has had on the families Bridges serves.

What would you be doing as a Giving Tuesday Ambassador? You will be mainly using social media as your ambassador platform. And we will be helping you out! We will ask that you post at least twice a week on your own social media accounts about Bridges' work and Giving Tuesday. Each post should generate interest in Giving Tuesday and encourage your network to participate! We welcome you to create your own posts, especially if you want to flex your own creative skills. If you want to help, but feel your creative skills aren't up to par, no worries! We will provide you with graphics and a communications guide. The communications guide can help you formulate your own pots. On the day of Giving Tuesday, we ask that you post at least 4 times throughout the day to generate interest and promote giving! After Giving Tuesday, we will provide you with a thank you graphic so you can let your networks know all the good work they have done!

Mission Statement

Bridges to Independence leads individuals and families out of homelessness and into stable, independent futures. We offer a continuum of aid and support for all family members, helping them attain financial security and move forward into self-sufficiency. A private, nonprofit organization, Bridges has been working with and for families experiencing homelessness since 1985, when we were founded as the Arlington-Alexandria Coalition for the Homeless.

Description

In a nutshell, "what we do" is build bridges to independence for homeless families and families at risk of becoming homeless. Our bridges - our services - strengthen these families and provide them with the stability, skills, knowledge, and community networks to become self-sufficient. We offer supports for every family member - adults and children alike. Our short-term goal is to help individual clients right now. Long-term, we aim to break the inter-generational cycle of poverty by preparing today’s struggling kids to be tomorrow’s successful adults. From housing to financial literacy, from tutoring to youth development, from life skills to career counseling, we tailor a continuum of services. Some activities are required, some are optional, and some are just plain fun.
