Virtual Giving Tuesday Celebration Planned Dec. 1

LEHI, UTAH — The Younique Foundation is joining the Giving Tuesday movement effort to unleash the power to transform their communities through the gift of hope and healing.

The Younique Foundation is hosting a virtual charity event, “Giving Tuesday Celebration,” Dec. 1 at 6 p.m. MST. Tickets are available with a suggested donation of $7, with all proceeds benefitting adult female survivors of child sexual abuse.

“Giving Tuesday is important every year, but in a year like 2020 it has taken on additional urgency and importance,” says Executive Director Chris Yadon. “More than ever, survivors of sexual abuse are suffering from isolation and loneliness, and this Giving Tuesday we have an opportunity to give the gift of hope and healing.”

The virtual celebration will include performances by the YouTube viral sensations Mat and Savanna Shaw, folk/pop band The National Parks, Utah vocalist and global performer Alex Boyé, Canadian country music singer-songwriter Lindsay Ell, and singer-songwriter Meg Myers. The evening will also include interviews with survivors and viewing videos about the foundation’s mission.

“The goal of our music has always been to share hope and spread joy, so we love performing opportunities that amplify good causes and organizations,” says Mat Shaw. “The Younique Foundation is special to me, especially as a father of two girls. The work it does to help women feel safe and whole and beautiful is worthy of our support. We are thrilled to be a part of their Giving Tuesday event, and to be supporting the great work it does.”

Tickets are now available at youniquefoundation.org. Due to the generosity of a private donor, all donations made through 11:30 p.m. MST on Dec. 1 will be matched up to $100,000. Those purchasing tickets will receive a link for the live stream and can re-watch it through Dec. 15.

The Younique Foundation, with offices in Lehi, Utah, and in Alpharetta, Georgia, fights efforts for the eradication of child sexual abuse and its effects. The Younique Foundation depends greatly on donations, as a public charity. Generous donations are the reason women from all over the world who are survivors of child sexual abuse can attend The Haven Retreat at no cost to them.
