UnselfieWe’re on the cusp of that crazy time of year which promises “deals of the century” just as soon as we set our forks down from your Thanksgiving Turkey. There are opportunities to shop, shop, shop until we drop, drop, drop! But what about trying something new this year?

In the midst of planning your holiday shopping excursions, take a moment to consider supporting the mission of the CAF Red Tail Squadron on #GivingTuesday, a unique crowdfunding campaign that has designated December 2nd as a day to celebrate generosity and to encourage giving!

Visit our #GivingTuesday page to learn more about how your donation will support the CAF Red Tail Squadron’s educational outreach efforts to educate audiences across the country about the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen, America’s first black military pilots and their support personnel. Schedule your donation today!

CAF Red Tail Squadron donors help us keep our program up and running, which includes an authentic, fully restored WWII-era P51C Mustang, the signature aircraft of the Tuskegee Airmen; the RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit 53’ mobile theater featuring the original panoramic film “Rise Above”; and educational materials and programs for teachers and youth leaders.

So far in 2014, over 133,000 people have experienced the exhibit and over 60,000 children have received a free inspirational dog tag, featuring the six guiding principles of the CAF Red Tail Squadron’s educational program: Aim High – Believe In Yourself – Use Your Brain – Never Quit – Be Ready to Go – Expect To Win. To date, more than 7.9 million air show spectators have seen the aircraft, further expanding the platform to share the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen. These are amazing figures and they are because of YOU, our generous supporters!

And of course, your donation to the CAF Red Tail Squadron – a 501(c)(3) charitable organization – is tax-deductible, just in time to include with your 2014 charitable giving tax deductions! Win-win!

Please check out our #GivingTuesday page and consider supporting the CAF Red Tail Squadron as you make your holiday plans. The gift of inspiration is invaluable!

RISE ABOVE!
