#GivingJustice on #GivingTuesday

Support Legal Aid by making a donation and using Amazon Smile

RALEIGH, Nov. 29, 2016 - Every year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Americans take a break from their holiday shopping sprees to celebrate Giving Tuesday, a social-media-driven day of giving that raises support for nonprofits that make a difference in our communities.

This year, Legal Aid of North Carolina asks you to celebrate Giving Tuesday by #GivingJustice. Make a donation today to help us provide critical legal help to 25,000 North Carolinians in need every year. We help victims of domestic violence escape their abusers, families secure safe and habitable housing, and consumers avoid scams, fraud and predatory lending.

Can't afford to donate right now? No problem. You can support Legal Aid for free by doing your holiday shopping through Amazon Smile, a program that lets Amazon shoppers donate a percentage of their purchases to charities of their choice. Using Amazon Smile is easy: Click here to start shopping, or drag this link to your bookmarks for later. Purchase items as usual, and a portion of the amount you spend will automatically be sent to us as a donation.

Our clients are among the most vulnerable people in our state, and most have nowhere else to go for legal help when their basic human needs are threatened. In turn, we need your support to continue helping as many clients as we can. Please consider donating to Legal Aid or choosing us as your charity on Amazon Smile.
