Giving Tuesday Now Global Day of Giving
May 5, 2020
Giving Tuesday Now is a global day of giving and unity that will take place on Tuesday, May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. At The Woodlands Children’s Museum, staff have been working hard while the museum is closed to give back to the community and offer children and families a sense of normalcy and connection while at home.
While closed, we have created a series of videos that follow the weekly Storybook Theater and Shadow Puppet Theater activities typically offered at the museum. Posting two videos each week on Facebook and Instagram, stories have been carefully chosen to celebrate favorite holidays and events such as Easter, Earth Day, and Springtime.
Children can enjoy the familiarity of the weekly storytimes and perhaps read along at home with a parent or older sibling. The storytimes can also be viewed on the museum’s website, along with a list of at-home activities and art projects compiled from children’s museums across the country.
Support from the community is requested to help ensure that the museum is ready to open again as soon as possible. During Giving Tuesday Now, The Woodlands Children’s Museum is introducing online gift certificates and new membership opportunities.
—Families who purchase a new annual membership, renew a membership, or buy a gift membership between May 1-31 will receive a bonus month, with the membership expiring 13 months after the date of purchase.
—-Individuals who purchase or renew membership during this time will also be entered to win a $50 gift certificate. The gift certificate can be used in the museum gift shop or may be applied towards the cost of a workshop, birthday party, or other museum events.
—In addition, the museum is offering a new Contributing Membership that includes a 12-month pass to the museum along with additional benefits that help support the museum’s mission.
Contributing Members can choose a $1,000 tier (“Museum Patron”) or a $500 tier (“Friend of the Museum”). A Contributing Membership is designed not only for current visitors, but also museum “alumni” who may have visited the museum when their children were younger, grandparents, or other members of the community who support early childhood learning and the importance of play.
