GIVING TUESDAY & END-OF-YEAR FUNDRAISER

TLS will be kicking off end-of-year fundraising with GivingTuesday again which is December 1st this year. GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. GivingTuesday is held annually the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (U.S. date).

Much has changed in only one year and many nonprofits, including TLS, are feeling the pinch of lack of funds due to cancellation of in-person events. In the midst of these challenges, TLS was determined to adapt and continue to support all those who create, maintain, and use labyrinths, and to serve the global community by providing education, networking, and opportunities to experience transformation. We were able to bring so many together for our special World Labyrinth Day Walk around the World event and the Virtual Gathering. We have also continued work on a completely new and much improved website.

Please support TLS and help us continue to provide these opportunities and resources to the worldwide labyrinth community. Keep an eye out for more information about #GivingTuesday, matching funds, and fundraising goals through December 31st.


TLS 2020 IN-PERSON GATHERING POSTPONED UNTIL 2021:

The Labyrinth Society was founded by a group of labyrinth enthusiasts who gathered together at a conference and then could not bear the thought of not making this gathering of like-minded souls a regular event. Every year, for 21 years, Labyrinth Society members and friends, have gathered together to see friends who have become close as family, and to meet new people, learn, and share. It is an event we look forward to every year.

However, this year, because of COVID-19 and the uncertainty surrounding the safety of travel, TLS's Board of Directors decided to postpone this year's Gathering until next year as a responsible and responsive show of our shared love and respect for our members and their families. The 2021 Gathering will be held at the same place as scheduled for this year, The Casa, Franciscan Renewal Center, Scottsdale, Arizona. The theme and keynotes will be the same, and the presenters who made proposals and were accepted this year will be given the opportunity to present. If needed, we may reopen a call for proposals to give others a second chance. The new dates are October 29-31, 2021. We look forward to seeing you at Gathering next year and interacting with you in other ways through the year as we build a stronger, more connected TLS.
