On #GivingTuesday, support the Saint John of Damascus Society

SJDS GivingTuesday Logo#GivingTuesday (LINK), as I understand it, is supposed to help provide balance for the two business days that come before it, the notorious Black Friday and Cyber Monday — a chance to observe the beginning of the season with charitable giving and not just buying.

So, I invite you to observe #GivingTuesday by giving to the Saint John of Damascus Society. Your tax-deductible gift will support several outreach and educational activities that center on the sacred music of the Eastern Orthodox Christian Churches, including:

– The Psalm 103 project (LINK)
– Media efforts such as our segment on Harmonia (LINK)
– The publication of our journal, Paraklitiki
– Recordings and concerts of Orthodox music
– Public workshops and talks
– And much, much more!

Giving to the Saint John of Damascus Society is very simple — go to http://www.johnofdamascus.org/support, click on the “Donate” button, and PayPal will take care of the rest. If you want to make a gift another way, or if you want to discuss your gift with me first, please send me an e-mail at richardbarrett AT johnofdamascus.org, and I’ll be happy to talk to you.

Happy #GivingTuesday, everyone!
