What If We All Decided To Give This Giving Tuesday?
The holiday season is our favorite time of year! It's the perfect time to reflect on what we have and it gives the world an excuse to give back in a bigger way.
Today, we'd like to showcase a woman who has dedicated her Giving Tuesday to helping others. Alexia Anastasio is donating her Giving Tuesday to a non-profit organization that has helped shape her career. This organization was her community and second home growing up on Long Island. They gave her a chance when she was just starting out putting together her first film festival right out of college and even gave her a closet/office to edit her first feature editorial debut. Not to mention show her first documentary film, Adventures in Plymptoons! in their big theater, Cinema 1. She's talking about the Cinema Arts Centre aka New Community Cinema Club, LLC.
Since Facebook is doing matching fund this week, Alexia has decided to create a small fundraiser on her page to raise money for this organization. For more info on this wonderful woman, visit her website http://www.alexiaanastasio.com.
