Giving Tuesday video: Today is a Good Day to Help!

Giving Tuesday is a day dedicated to charitable giving all over the world! 

Naturally, this is a day that we are counting down the days to!


Why? Because, each year, Crossroads helps upwards of 120 children and their families from all over the region.

The necessity of giving the children that we serve the skills that are so essential to their success in life is something we can’t do without help from our community. 

We are making a difference here, one day at a time. Please help. 

We need your support to make our GIVING day a success!

We are excited to be part of the movement again this year at Crossroads Center for Children!
  1. Giving Tuesday is a global day for charitable giving that many are familiar with. Crossroads has participated each year and looks forward to this day as an opportunity to have our message seen and our mission supported financially by donors looking for charitable giving opportunities.
  2. Giving Tuesday follows Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday as a day to focus on generosity and giving to nonprofits.  
  3. Giving Tuesday connects the forces of nonprofits throughout the world and through our local commmunity, raising awareness and essential funds for the work nonprofits do.
  4. We are hopeful to have Giving Day support of our wonderful community to help make the world a better place for children and families living with autism and other neuro-developmental special learning needs.
Help by donating –
DONATE in any of these ways:
  • Go to our SMART LAUNCH CAMPAIGN. (Here your donation will be designated to our Technology Project).
  • Go to our FACEBOOK PAGE. (Here your donation will help with the school’s expenses all year long.)
  • Go to our DONATE PAGE. (Here your donation will help with the school’s expenses all year long OR you can let us know your preference.)
  • Come to or mail to the school.


  • Share and share alike. Online days of giving are successful because of our own networks. Help us grow our network by sharing and communicating to your network.
  • Be socially (media) active. Use your social media networks: post on Facebook, tweet about  #GivingTuesday and share your love for your particular passion for education, autism, speech, OT, PT, ABA, fundraising, and so on. Share posts and events posted on Crossroads’ channels. Ask others to do the same. 


Here at Crossroads, while donors from our community are giving to the school, the school will be giving a special day to our children and families!

With the help of some very caring volunteers, we’ll give the gifts of music and art to our students and their parents.

Please contact Vicki at 518-280-0083 ext.126 if you would like to volunteer with an art project or other form of enrichment program that day, or to help take donations from visitors.
