Thanks…Giving Tuesday! Take Your Chapter’s MDA Giving to the #NEXT LEVEL!

This year Arizona DECA is proud to announce that we will be participating in the global movement known as Giving Tuesday, that occurs every year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. The purpose of this movement is to kick off the charitable season each year. This Giving Tuesday, Arizona DECA wants to highlight the Muscular Dystrophy Association by encouraging members to donate through fundraisers hosted by your chapter, interacting with Arizona DECA’s events and by continuing to participate in the Community Service Competition. We are so excited to be releasing all the information that your chapter will need to make the beginning of this charitable season DECAmazing, in the days leading up to Giving Tuesday!

Team 60 is thrilled to be hosting a Arizona DECA Game Night on December 3rd at 5:15pm after the Arizona One DECA Call. All of the proceeds from this game night will be donated to the MDA. With a donation of just 5 dollars, you will get to play some great games, network with other members, and in addition we will be having 4 winners at the end of the night. Our first place winner will receive a stylish DECA crewneck and the following 3 players will be awarded with one of our new DECA Drip boxes!

It is important to recognize that the donations your chapter raises, no matter the amount, can make a difference in impacting the life of someone that is living with muscular dystrophy. Every single dollar counts. We would also like to recognize that Giving Tuesday is the launch of the year’s charitable season; it is important to not only participate in the fundraising events but to also contribute by doing other initiatives such as the Community Service Competition. As always if you have any questions please feel free to reach out to your Arizona DECA State Officer Team!

With warm regards in DECA,

Jacque Quesada
District 4 President
