#GivingTuesday and JDPP

#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. This year, #GivingTuesday falls on November 28. #GivingTuesday harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together. Please consider giving a gift to JDPP this year on #GivingTuesday. Your gift provides hope, creativity, community, and strength to all those who participate in JDPP programming.

Sharma Howard
Hartford Courant
“In some ways, Dworin represents the Connecticut dance scene today, sailing in many different directions, finding voice and purpose in uncharted territory.”

Carol Terry

And we all breathed in the spoken and sung words as part of the magic of movement. Read more
