Celebrate #GivingTuesday — Donate Today

We all know Thanksgiving — a day of thanks. And we all know Black Friday — a day of getting deals. So what’s Giving Tuesday?

A day of giving back.

Truth Be Told is participating in #GivingTuesday for the second year, and we’re so excited to join thousands of nonprofit organizations in a global movement that promotes donating to causes that speak to us — and that make the communities we live in a better place.

Our goal is to raise $10,000. The money we raise will support the work we are currently doing, and help support our growth in 2016.

In the last two years, we have grown from providing services in three facilities to five, with a sixth facility planned for the New Year. Growing in such an impactful way has only been possible thanks to the support of donors like you, and the incredible dedication of our vigilant volunteers.

As an organization, expansion stretches our comfort zone. But that’s also something we ask of the brave women we serve. We ask them to step into a place of vulnerability and courage, and to dig deep, uncovering the story that has brought them to the place that they now sit. The women who sign up for our classes step over the threshold of the unknown, and into a new way of life.

We, too, want to step over the threshold of “what’s next,” and discover the beauty that waits on the other side. But we need your help to get there.

Donate today to support our Giving Tuesday campaign. Thank you in advance for your support. Without you, none of this would be possible.

About Shelley Seale

I'm Shelley, a journeyer and learner of the world, freelance journalist and author, yoga chick and dog lover. I pound the keyboard from home barefoot every day, and while my boss is demanding she also occasionally lets me have the early afternoon cocktail. I think not going into an office or collecting corporate paychecks are very good ideas, though not always profitable. I have written for National Geographic, USA Today, The Guardian, Texas Monthly and CNN, among others. Neither the New York Times nor Johnny Depp have answered my letters yet. I love yoga, indie movies, wine, and books, though not necessarily in that order. I believe in karma. Mean people suck. If I could have any dream job I would like to be a superhero. I have performed a catch on the flying trapeze, boarded down a live volcano and was once robbed by a monkey in Nepal. But, I don't know how to whistle. My mantra is "travel with a purpose."
