Giving Tuesday 2021
Help us Re-Launch ORBIT
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
Gifts given on Giving Tuesday and the week before will benefit Open Space’s ORBIT initiative. Launched in the summer of 2019, ORBIT (Open Space Recreational Base for Island Teenagers) provides meaningful opportunities for high school-aged students on the Island.
After a relentlessly challenging year for teens, Open Space is thrilled to relaunch our teen center, ORBIT. Before the pandemic canceled in-person gathering in March of 2020, ORBIT events and programs had taken on a life of their own. Teens planned dances, art installations, and even entrepreneurial and vocational projects with support from the ORBIT program coordinator. Funds from this benefit will go towards continuing to reopen this center with gusto.
