  #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, ##GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.  WEMU first participated in #GivingTuesday in 2013.  Over the years the event has become a beloved WEMU tradition.

It truly is a celebration of giving!  WEMU conducts a one-day pledge drive and gives back at the same time.  At 10 AM we open the doors for community tours, offer a free hot chocolate, coffee, and cookie buffet in The King Hall Multi-Cultural Lounge and present an all-day jazz and blues jam session in the lounge with The Kurt Krahnke Trio.  Great musicians from all over the Detroit - Ann Arbor - Ypsilanti area trade musical chairs with Kurt and the trio from 10 AM to 5 PM.  Student musicians are warmly welcomed to jam with pros!  #GivingTuesday in 2017 will be one the final events to celebrate 40 Years Of Jazz on WEMU and #GivingTuesday will be a great, swinging time once again.   Keep checking back with the WEMU Facebook Page and WEMU.ORG for #GivingTuesday updates.
