DEC 1, All Day at Nordia House!
Giving Tuesday is a global day of donating to charity the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, with over 30,000 organizations participating in 68 countries. It's a 24-hour period to give where your heart is, and this year, we have two easy ways to give to SHF: either online or in-person. Every year, SHF brings you the best of the Nordic countries, from ScanFeast to ScanFair, film festivals to cooking classes, concerts to plays. Help SHF continue to celebrate Nordic heritage by donating on Giving Tuesday.
