In one powerful international day of giving, teachers across the country are going to spark student attitudes of generosity and concern for others! On December 1, 10,000 teachers will teach their students what it means to be a philanthropic citizen.

Learning to Give, an online resource for more than two million K-12 teachers, provides free lessons to teach the purpose and power of giving and helping others. For #GivingTuesday, they are asking teachers nationwide to simply teach one (#teach1) lesson on giving. They have provided eight lessons to get started. While the whole world is making the Tuesday after Thanksgiving a day of giving, students in 10,000 classrooms across the nation will be learning about philanthropy: giving time, talent, or treasure for the common good. 

Young people have the ability and desire to influence issues in their community and world. Learning to Give helps teachers start discussions and provide understanding about philanthropy. From kindergarten through 12th grade, teachers are introducing their students to using their talents and skills to make a difference. With Learning to Give in the classroom, the next genration will learn the traits of generosity, service, civic actions, and revolutionary change. 

Please pass it on by telling all the teachers you know to Teach One lesson about giving on #GivingTuesday. Learn more at  - Mini-grants available - application deadline is December 5.
