AAU is thrilled to be a part of #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations worldwide to encourage philanthropy and celebrate generosity.

Never heard of #GivingTuesday before? It all started in 2012 with a simple idea – to act as a counterweight to the consumerism encouraged by Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.), #GivingTuesday kicks off the giving season.

We have partnered with CARE, a major international humanitarian agency delivering emergency relief and long-term international development projects, to show that We CARE.

How can I help? It's simple, AND delicious!

We all love the scrumptious cookies, muffins, and brownies served up daily at Café des Taxis. On Giving Tuesday, November 28th, you can get a pastry of your choice for doing a good deed!

Upon the purchase of a Giving Card (the amount of money you spend is up to you), you’ll get to enjoy one of CDT’s tantalizing treats as well as perform a charitable act. What could be better?
