#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving, fueled by social media, that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. This year, we are working in collaboration with SHARE Charlotte to inspire Acts of Good among our community and supporters during the week of November 20th.
Did you know that there are 44.7 million adults in the United States who are living with a mental illness, and of that number, 10.4 million are struggling with a mental illness that is serious enough to debilitate their day-to-day living? Without the tools needed to cultivate sustainable healthy behaviors, the journey towards mental wellness feels like a roller coaster with no real stability. But your support allows us to equip many of these individuals with life-changing resources that will help them find long-term healing.
By partnering with us for #GivingTuesdayCLT, you play a key role in helping clients and their loved ones find stability through better access to premier mental health care and education. Help us reach our goal of $10,400 to honor the 10.4 million adults who need access to the kind of transformative tools HopeWay offers. Through you, lives can be changed, even saved…
Each day of #GivingTuesdayCLT will feature a unique opportunity for you to give GOOD. Check out all the many ways you can get involved this year through our 8 Days of Ways to Give...

Join HopeWay's yoga instructor, Kris Brooks, at her 9:30 am class at the Yoga One Studio in Dilworth. They are donating $2 for every student who attends. We can't give to others if we're running on empty. Give GOOD to you today!
Don't Be a Turkey Thursday, 11/22
