Days are set aside to give thanks…and to shop for great deals.
Did you know there is a day to give back? Giving Tuesday!
After Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday comes #GivingTuesday, a day that celebrates the selflessness inherent in the season, and that has inspired giving around the world–and enabled people like YOU to make a difference.
Do you cherish your Virginia homeschool freedoms? Here’s a chance to make a difference on #GivingTuesday, December 3!
This year, you have a chance to participate with HEAV!
BEFORE Giving Tuesday: 1, 2, 3, Smile for Instagram!
You don’t have to wait until December 3. Join us for a fun Instagram challenge! Just upload an image–any kind of a selfie or other pose (when you’re homeschooling, LIVING your homeschool, or just having fun!) Be sure to tag it #HomeschooStrong #HEAVorg #GivingTuesday
Too complicated? Just send your image to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll take care of that for you! 🙂
Have FUN with this! (We did!) Make it a family event. A special “just because we can” day. There are some beautiful autumn days coming up–PERFECT days for a family get-together outside.
Enjoy the day–and snap a picture!
Your participation not only sets a great example for your children, but it also helps keep #HomeschoolStrong in Virginia—and protects our homeschool freedoms for generations to come.
Then, on #GivingTuesday…
Join us on Facebook throughout the day–we have a lot of fun things planned: live video, contests, games and more! You’ll get to meet HEAV team members, get live updates, and enter giveaways. Be sure to follow us if you haven’t already!
Also, when we reach milestones, we’ll be giving away prizes throughout the day to everyone! They will be given away live on Facebook. so you’ll want to be sure to follow us.
Please help us out by sharing our Facebook posts and e-mails and donating whatever you can. Together, we can #HomeschoolStrong!
Double- and Triple-Match Challenges
One of the favorite elements of #GivingTuesday has been the double- and triple-match challenges. Don’t you LOVE the idea that their donation–and yours!–will go two or three times as far! Depending on funds, we run two or three, 30-minute challenges throughout the day, and those periods bring in the bulk of our Giving Tuesday donations.
Would you consider giving to our donation match challenge? (Your donation would go twice as far, too—as Giving Tuesday donors step up to meet the challenge.) Click here to make a match! (Be sure to choose Giving Tuesday as your donation type.)

Why Support HEAV?
In their own words…
“HEAV is my voice in the legislature! Anytime there is threat to homeschooling or a concerning bill, HEAV alerts me and keeps me up to date.”
“We are SO blessed to live in the state of Virginia and have HEAV! Many times during the conference, I actually welled up with tears….thinking of how we are reaping the rewards of DECADES of labor on the part of many dedicated parents. There is far more going on behind the scenes than we ever realize. HEAV is a TREMENDOUS blessing and we do not take it for granted.” ~Mary Cherry
We can’t wait to share more testimonies like these all day long on December 3!
Remember! Upload YOUR favorite #HomeschoolStrong image to Instagram, or send it to email@example.com and we’ll upload it for you!
