Help NS Ramp Up for 2019
Nebraska Shakespeare has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Occurring this year on November 27, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the US) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
Nebraska Shakespeare has joined the #GivingTuesday movement for the second year because we believe the global movement is very powerful. We believe that sharing our talents with others is the most fulfilling way to use them. The movement allows us to share our story with others and encourage the spirit of giving to grow greater than ever before. This #GivingTuesday our goal is to fund expanding the experiences we offer to our audiences at Shakespeare On The Green and during our Shakespeare On Tour season.
Being a part of the #GivingTuesday community also provides the opportunity to share the Nebraska Shakespeare story with a wider audience to gain followers while at the same time generating support for our upcoming productions: Hamlet, All's Well That Ends Well, and Othello. Our #AllsWellThatStartsWell campaign launches on November 27, 2018.

92Y − a cultural center in New York City that, since 1874, has been bringing people together around its core values of community service and giving back − conceptualized #GivingTuesday as a new way of linking individuals and causes to strengthen communities and encourage giving. In 2017, the sixth year of #GivingTuesday, millions of people in over 150 countries came together to give back and support the causes they believe in. Over $300 million was raised online to benefit a tremendously broad range of organizations, and much more was given in volunteer hours, donations of food and clothing, and acts of kindness.
