About an hour ago, a few of us gathered around and marveled at your generosity. At midnight we started tallying. We are so thankful for your amazing donations. 45 donors stepped up and reached deep and we are floored. There may be others as Facebook does not reveal to us all who have setup their own fundraisers on our behalf. At the moment, it's $3,000! The students and teachers at Art & Design will benefit tremendously.
Whether it's Film/Video, Cartooning, Illustration or Photography, #ArtandDesignHS provides amazing programs for our students. Help us provide the supplies, materials and experiences our students need this #GivingTuesday!

A&D HS parents - Giving Tuesday is right around the corner!!
Next Tuesday, November 28 is Giving Tuesday. Now in its 6th year, Giving Tuesday was created as an antidote to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It is a day to give to favorite charities and non-profit organizations, and is publicized through social media.
Now that we are a non-profit 501 (C) 3, The Art and Design High School PTA is participating in Giving Tuesday to help raise needed funds. Can you help?...
1. Volunteer to be an Art and Design Social Media Ambassador The PTA will be posting several Giving Tuesday messages on Facebook on from tomorrow Wednesday November 22nd through Tuesday November 28th. Monday and Tuesday we will be posting multiple times throughout the day.
All you need to do is pledge to share the posts on your own social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat, etc) and ask people to support our future graphic designers, architects, cartoonists, illustrators, fashion designers, and more. And have your kids participate as well – they can share on their social media platforms – A&D HS Spirit!!
2. Donate to the PTA on Giving Tuesday http://artanddesignpta.org/donate We know you may get lots of requests for Giving Tuesday, but we hope that you will support a charitable cause that directly supports the students and teachers of Art and Design High School. Our goal is to raise $250 on Giving Tuesday. Any amount is welcome and it's tax deductible!
Your purchases will benefit the school!
