What is #givingtuesday?

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

Following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this year’s #GivingTuesday will take place on December 3rd and will kick off the season by inspiring people to collaborate and give back.

Crime Stoppers of Michigan has joined this effort to help more communities, families, kids and animals who have been affected by crime in the seven counties of southeast Michigan and help to prevent other mothers, fathers, grandparents, sons, daughters, grandchildren, dogs and cats from becoming a victim of a crime.

“We stand committed to continuing our efforts to bring those living in SE Michigan together to create safer, stronger communities, empowering people of Southeast Michigan to make their neighborhoods, schools, churches, and businesses safer through the anonymous reporting of crime”
-Dan DiBardino
, President of Crime Stoppers of Michigan

With help from supporters Crime Stoppers of Michigan will continue to provide support to our law enforcement agencies while at the same time, providing hope to the victims and families affected by crimes of any kind.

While we celebrate the past 26 years of service, we recognize clearly more must be done. As SE Michigan, in particular its largest city, the City of Detroit, continues its recovery, each of us must continue to work together to keep our neighborhoods and communities safe for each other. The reduction of crime and deviant behavior ensures the safety and economic growth of our region. Further, it allows our fellow citizens to reach their full potential, and by doing so, enjoy productive, fulfilling lives that enrich our region
