ATLANTA - Nov. 22, 2016 - PRLog -- Science, Engineering and Mathematics Link Inc. (SEM Link) is partner in the 5th Annual #GivingTuesday, a nationwide movement that harnesses the power of a unique blend of partners—charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. #GivingTuesday has already inspired over 1,400 organizations and people in all 50 U.S. states and around the world to take collaborative action. Scheduled for November 29th – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – and the Day after the famed "Black Friday and "Cyber Monday" shopping days, #GivingTuesday will harness the power of social media to create an opening day for giving.

SEM Link joined to #GIVINGTUESDAY Initiative to raise awareness and funds to support Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education and career exploration. "The future which we hold in trust for our own children will be shaped by our fairness to other people's children is one of my favorite quotes by Marian Wright Edelman. We continue to participate in #GivingTuesday because we understand that if we are going to ensure that we are able to fill the pipeline for the future workforce it is dependent on individuals that are willing to invest in the lives of other people's children. " stated Ms. Tokiwa T. Smith SEM Link Founder and Executive Director. SEM Link's programs invest in the lives of other people's children by providing STEM educational opportunities for youth that connect them with members of the STEM community to engage in hands on STEM activities and explore STEM careers. #GivingTuesday is a part of SEM Link's End of the Year Giving Campaign, individuals that want to donate to SEM Link can do online via Paypal https://paypal.me/semlink on GivingTuesday or any day on or before December 31st. In addition to making a financial contribution during the holiday season, the organization is asking individuals to earn money for the organization while doing their holiday online shopping. When individuals register for and designate Science, Engineering and Mathematics Link Inc. as the charity they support on Amazon Smile (http://smile.amazon.com/ch/34-2050759) and GoodShop (http://www.goodshop.com/) the organization receives a portion of their sale as a donation.
