#GiveSwedish on #GivingTuesday

GIVESWEDISHredsmallcroppedYou’ve heard of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, but what about Giving Tuesday? When you #GiveSwedish to the Swedish American Museum on Dec. 1, you support field trips for hundreds of schoolchildren, lectures, cultural events and tours of our permanent exhibit “The Dream of America,” which brings the story of immigration to life. Ready to give? Click the #GiveSwedish image to make a donation through PayPal Giving Fund.
