Giving Tuesday: List of local charities in need of donations
–The Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce recently coordinated with local non-profits, service clubs, and faith communities to create a “Paso Gives” campaign as part of its #PasoStrong initiative.
Paso Robles optometrist Dr. Doug Major created a video to promote the idea of locals donating to local organizations for Giving Tuesday, Dec. 1.
Giving Tuesday, which follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday, was created in 2012 as a day to encourage people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

More local charities are invited by the chamber of commerce to participate. “We want you to be involved! This is an on-going campaign, and we would love to include as many charitable organizations as possible,” says Leanna Newby with the chamber. “Please email your logo to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the mosaic. If you are interested in creating a video for the campaign, we will connect you with Dr. Doug Major for recording assistance and we will provide the editing!”
