#Giving Tuesday
November 27

On the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, people across the nation are asked to join in supporting nonprofit organizations you love and depend on. We ask you to consider sustaining Habitot -- we have to raise 40% of our budget every year. Help us meet Berkeley's required minimum wage of $15/hr for all employees, provide funds for facility upgrades and new exhibits, and free admission for the most vulnerable families. #GivingTuesday is a great way to think of others during end-of-year giving.
