Giving Tuesday meets Teen Writers & Artists Project.


Learn more about our #GivingTuesday efforts. 

What is #GivingTuesday??? 


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 29, 2016, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.

what does this have to do with t-waap???

Teen Writers and Artists Project is participating in #GivingTuesday this holiday season.  By donating to our page on Crowdrise, you are helping support our program, West Suburban Wordplay, and the costs to run it through 2017.  Teens from across the area come together to create and connect in a safe, friendly environment. (To find out more about Wordplay, click the "programs" tab). 

Our goal this year is to raise as close to $5,000 as possible in order to continue offering at least one FREE program a month in 2017.
