Giving Tuesday – 2017

#GivingTuesday

What is Giving Tuesday?

We know about

  • Black Friday
  • Small Business Saturday
  • Cyber Monday

Giving Tuesday was started in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation as a response to the commercialization and consumerism in the post-Thanksgiving season (Black Friday and Cyber Monday).

But what is Giving Tuesday in Albion?  The Giving Tuesday woven heart logo is remodeled here with Albion events and opportunities that were made possible by gifts large and small.

General Guide – Issue XXVII is the Giving Edition, which is sponsored by Albion Community Foundation and Marshall Community Foundation.

The topics here will be covered with more photos and posts in the coming month.  Starting at the left and moving clockwise are:

New Bricks and Aerial View of New Hotel, Nov. 6, 2017

Check out downtown Albion’s new brick street and new displays of local artists showcased in many front windows. Also, be on the lookout for more stores “popping up” like the Green Scene next door to Stirling Books & Brew, open from November 15th through the holiday season.

Downtown Albion has a new look with the Courtyard by Marriott hotel that is taking shape.  Here we can see the bike lanes, the wider sidewalks, and Kids ‘N’ Stuff.  In the distance we see Cascarelli’s, the water tower, Ludington Center, the Coca Cola mural, and the Bohm Theatre.

General Guide XXVII Giving Edition

Look inside your Morning Star or Ad-Visor & Chronicle this weekend if you live in the city of Albion or Marshall for your very own copy of the General Guide.

This issue has information about holiday traditions of the season including Giving Tuesday.  We will post more information here soon including answers to the puzzle inside.  Check out the Google Calendars – Albion and Calhoun County – that go with the printed calendars and have links to official events.
