With Thanksgiving just behind us, and as we prepare to celebrate and enjoy the upcoming holiday festivities, there's much for us all to be thankful for. Opportunities abound for expressing our gratitude—for what we have and how we contribute.
Giving Tuesday, celebrated on the first Tuesday following Thanksgiving each year, encourages people to do good by giving back. MIND has always been devoted to making a difference, and any opportunity we have to celebrate that goal is worth taking advantage of!
The past few of years have been unlike any other. But with the generous support of our donors and supporters, we continued to deepen student access to meaningful math learning during the 2022-2023 school year.
As we prepare to wrap up 2023 and welcome the new year, I’d like to share a few ways you can support MIND Education this holiday season. Together, we can continue to fulfill MIND’s mission to ensure all students are mathematically equipped to solve the world’s most challenging problems.
Here are 5 ways you can support MIND this holiday season:
Did you know that you can support MIND through your Amazon purchases? By shopping on the AmazonSmile site (smile.amazon.com) and selecting “MIND Education” as your beneficiary, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to MIND.
I truly hope MIND is your charitable organization of choice. Did you know, this year MIND was able to expand its ST Math reach to more than 2.1 million students and 110,000 teachers in over 7,000 schools across all 50 states?
This is one of the many great things we accomplished together in 2023!
Shop at the MIND Marketplace and JiJi Store
