GT graphicTomorrow, December 2nd, is #GivingTuesday, your chance to include the worthy charitable organizations like the CAF Red Tail Squadron in your holiday giving line-up! Hopefully you survived the hustle bustle of Black Friday and today is hailed Cyber Monday, but tomorrow is when the generosity really flows with #GivingTuesday. Will you remember us in your good deeds?

It’s a competitive landscape out there for charitable gifts. We get it! The economy is not what it used to be and times are tough, which is why we are all the more grateful to YOU, our continued generous supporters, who are enabling us to ensure the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen endures for all to learn from and be inspired by.

Since the debut of the RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit in July 2011, over 133,000 people have experienced the exhibit and over 61,000 children have received a free inspirational dog tag. Our P-51C Mustang has not only wowed audiences all over the country, but has been a vehicle to share the often-overlooked yet highly inspirational history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen with a new audience everywhere it goes. And it’s because of the donations and support of folks like YOU that we can do it.

We are using the excitement of aviation as a tool to help change lives, and air shows and community events across the country are a platform to bring this inspirational message to audiences everywhere. But it certainly is not free! YOU are helping us to touch hearts and minds in a way that honors the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen. YOUR support is what makes this happen!

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!
