Spread the week away!

Earthdance is participating in the nonprofit version of Black Friday. #GivingTuesday is an opportunity to create excitement, spread the word, and garner support for your favorite creative community. #GivingTuesday on December 1st is kicking off Earthdance's 30th Anniversary celebration year in 2016. We're raising $30,000 between December 1st and December 31st to bring us into our next 30 years of creative living. Will you help us raise $3,000 on December 1st?
