November 28th, 2017 - #GivingTuesday

Each November, we participate in #GivingTuesday. What is #GivingTuesday? It’s a global giving movement built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses, and communities in all 50 states and in countries all over the world. On #GivingTuesday, millions of amazing folks come together to support and champion the causes they believe in.

We hope you’ll consider donating to our work at Congaree Riverkeeper next week, OR if you can’t donate, contact us to volunteer your time! We have big plans for 2018; help us make the Congaree, Broad, and Saluda cleaner and healthier for our growing Midlands communities.

Donate in one of two ways:

1. Our Facebook page.

2. Our website.

Thanks to the generosity of The War Mouth, 10% of all proceeds will be donated to Congaree Riverkeeper! At The War Mouth, they understand that "beer is 95% water," so without clean water, there's no delicious beer!

Where: The War Mouth
Why: Congaree Riverkeeper 9th Anniversary
