Pro Bono Net Announces #GivingTuesday Challenge 
Global Day of Giving Takes Place this Year on November 29

New York, New York - Pro Bono Net is planning a #GivingTuesday Challenge for the global giving day. Since its founding in 2012, millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live. For the first time, Pro Bono Net is joining the movement with our own challenge.

After two days for getting deals - Black Friday and Cyber Monday -#GivingTuesday is a day for giving back.  All over the country, and indeed the world, people are embracing this day as an opportunity to raise money for the good of the wider community. Pro Bono Net is using our #GivingTuesday Challenge to encourage the support of access to justice around the country. People can get involved in one or more of the following ways:

Donate to the Pro Bono Net Family - Giving Tuesday is about giving back to our communities. Pro Bono Net is instrumental in creating technologies that promote access to justice for our most vulnerable populations. We are asking that people show their support for our work by making a tax deductible donation to help us fulfill our mission to bridge the justice gap.

Share your dedication on social media - All day on #GivingTuesday Pro Bono Net will be sharing photos of our staff with quotes and stories about why they believe in Pro Bono Net's work to increase access to justice. We are inviting our community to join us by sharing their stories and motivations! Click here to download our banner and take your own photo, or simply share your experience in our comments and via twitter. We are using the hashtags #GivingTuesday and #AccesstoJustice for the day. 

Volunteer - We encourage any lawyers who can to volunteer with organizations across the country to increase access to justice for those who cannot afford representation. Start searching for opportunities to volunteer right now by using our searchable online Pro Bono Opportunities Guide or check out our "Volunteer Tools" page to learn about the range of online resources we have on probono.net to help mobilize and engage pro bono volunteers.

Across America millions have legal needs that are still going unmet. Being unable to afford an attorney can limit access to justice significantly. Through innovative technology solutions, Pro Bono Net empowers the public with information and self-help tools to improve their lives, equips advocates with the resources to make a stronger impact, and mobilizes volunteers to expand the help available. Along with a broad network of partners, our programs increase access to justice around the nation.

Pro Bono Net needs your help to bring access to justice to millions of Americans. You can give back by participating in our #GivingTuesday Challenge on November 29th

About #GivingTuesday
#GivingTuesday is a movement, built by people around the world, to celebrate giving of all kinds.  It is celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.), Black Friday and Cyber Monday; this year it falls on November 29, 2016. This movement is the result of the collective power of a unique blend of partners - nonprofits large and small; businesses and corporations; schools and universities; civic campaigns in cities, states and regions; and families and individuals - to inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities and contribute in countless ways to the causes they believe in. Everyone has something to give.
