What is #GivingTuesday?

#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in countries around the world. Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.

What does #GivingTuesday have to do with ArtSparks?

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, ArtSparks programs rely on the charitable efforts of individuals and organizations in our community. A gift of any size can make a huge impact on ArtSparks' work in northeast Ohio, and #GivingTuesday provides a way for our community to support arts education together. This year, we request donations for a project we hope to start next year: DDX Project.

What is ArtSparks' DDX Project?

Dynamite Duos Extreme is inspired by DREAM Project created by National Dance Institute. Bringing together the best of our Dynamite Duos program's dancers with disabilities and our advanced teams (TNT and XD), the DDX Project will take place over the summer (2020) and finish with a performance. DDX is designed to deepen learning and the bonds between dancers with disabilities and typically developing peers, teaching compassion, inclusion, and collaboration.

How can I help make DDX happen?

#GivingTuesday provides the opportunity for all who support our work and arts education to give together and help us towards our goal of $5,500. Donations can be made for the DDX Project through our website or our Facebook page between now and #GivingTuesday on Dec 3rd.
Facebook generously MATCHES any donations made on Dec 3rd! Be sure to follow us on social media to stay updated on our progress on #GivingTuesday! 
If you would like to help outside of a monetary donation, we will be looking for volunteers to help with DDX if we are able to reach our funding goal. Reach out to TNT@artsparksdance.org to let us know you are interested!
