Support Farmers on #GivingTuesday
Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is your opportunity to donate to charitable organizations that matter most to you. On Tuesday, November 27, The Georgia Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture will be participating in Georgia Gives Day on Giving Tuesday to raise money for farmers affected by Hurricane Michael.
The GFB Foundation for Ag Hurricane Michael Relief Fund has already received hundreds of donations and created tremendous momentum to support farmers devastated by the storm. Georgia Gives Day is an opportunity to further these efforts and increase awareness for farmers in need. During certain hours of this day, donations will be doubled and even tripled.
