Give Back to Vision Zero

#GivingTuesdayUnselfie#GIVINGTUESDAY

We have a day for giving thanks. We have three days for getting deals – Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. And, since 2012, we now have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.

It’s a simple idea. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014 — for 24 hours — people all around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate the act of giving back.

This year, Walk San Francisco is launching its first-ever, annual #GivingTuesday to raise funds to support the Vision Zero campaign to end all serious and fatal traffic injuries in 10 years!

Walk SF invites you come together to give with other members of the San Francisco community, and to do something more: tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity. For Walk SF’s first #GivingTuesday, we’ve set a goal of $2,400 — $100 for community outreach efforts supporting each of the 24 spot, safety improvements, to be delivered in 24 months by the City.

You can support Walk SF’s first #GivingTuesday goal of $2,400 in three different ways:

  1. Give online at walksf.org (and when prompted for why you gave today, choose the #GivingTuesday option)
  2. Follow/Like Walk SF at TwitterInstagram, and/or Facebook
  3. Post about #GivingTuesday by re-tweeting or re-sharing Walk SF’s or your friends’ posts

When you help spread the word for safer, better streets, don’t forget to use the hashtags #GivingTuesday and #VisionZero. Plus, for every dollar raised as part of #GivingTuesday, a group of special Walk SF donors has stepped up to DOUBLE your gift!

Help put an end to preventable tragedies like the deaths of 2 year-old Mi’yana Gregory, 28-year city Staffer Precy Moreto, grandmother of eight Pei Fong Yim Lee, and 29 year-old Zach Watson — four of the 28 people have have already lost their lives this year.

Make the most of your donation to speak up for the 24 Vision Zero projects, today! Help fix the dangerous streets that lead to at least three people being hit by cars every day, while walking in San Francisco.  Give now.

Celebrate Like a Walk Star at Woonerven 2014!
