Each year in November, we have one day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. November 29 marks Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation's second year participating in #GivingTuesday, and Thetas will come together to support an organization that has given us so much.
On #GivingTuesday 2015, more than 600 Theta members and friends made a commitment to the future of our Fraternity through Give to Lead, Give to Learn. From that effort, we shattered Theta Foundation's overall $5 million Campaign goal six months early, securing Kappa Alpha Theta's place at the forefront of leadership and learning.
On #GivingTuesday 2016, donations will provide funding for educational and leadership programs that enhance the membership experience of Thetas, including scholarships, educational grants, access to service trips, mental health programming, professional development, and leadership workshops. When you give to Theta this #GivingTuesday, you will help Thetas embrace their ambition, reach their fullest potential, and make a difference in the world. Join us and make a donation today!
Thanks to all our collegians and alumnae who submitted photos from an inspiring variety of Day of Service projects! Theta is proud of its members for taking time to commemorate Day of Service and spread the widest influence for good in communities around the world.
This year's winner of the 2016 photo contest is Phi/Pacific, whose members served at Bogg's Tract Community Farm in Stockton, California.
Phi members wrote of their project: "The organization's mission is to 'build equity through sustainable technology that fosters social entrepreneurship, education and motivation of at-risk communities in the Americas to break cycles of food insecurity and injustice surrounding inadequate access to healthy whole foods.' We were able to learn more about their community efforts and supported their mission by restoring plots that have been unkempt."

Michelle Geiger, Delta Kappa/LSU, was recently appointed as chairman of the College Panhellenics Committee of the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC). This committee encompasses all of the more than 600 college Panhellenics on campuses across North America. In her new role, Michelle will coordinate the support NPC provides to these Panhellenic associations and guide the programming of the Conference as it pertains to college Panhellenics.
"I am so proud that Michelle has been appointed as chairman of the College Panhellenics Committee," said Amy Kates, Theta's NPC delegate. "She is part of a long tradition of Theta leading women serving the broader Greek community through NPC. I hope Michelle's example of dedication to the sorority movement will inspire Thetas everywhere to become leaders in their own Panhellenic associations."
Michelle has served Theta in many roles, including public relations district director, Panhellenic district director, marketing committee chairman, and, most recently, the Fraternity's 1st alternate NPC delegate, a role in which she will continue.
