    Join Legal Aid Society of Orange County on December 1st for #GivingTuesday
     #GivingTuesday benefiting LASOC

    Legal Aid Society of Orange County #GivingTuesday 2015
     It's Time For Giving

    Join us for Giving Tuesday on December 1st and give BIG to make an impact!

    We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.

    On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

    It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.

     We make a living by what we get.
    We make a life by
    what we give.

    - Winston Churchill

    A donation to the Legal Aid Society of Orange County is a gift that lasts. Your contribution will help fund free legal assistance to those in our client community that would not otherwise be able to afford legal assistance. Veterans that have been wrongfully denied government benefits. Mothers and fathers, who are caring homemakers, facing child custody battles. Seniors who have been cheated by scammers or abused by their caretakers. Spouses and children who need protection from domestic violence. Homeless individuals that need assistance with legal issues to help them become self-sufficient.

    Our goal is to raise $20,000 this #GivingTuesday, but we can't do it without your help. Give a little, give a lot, but please just give and share the donation link with your network of friends and colleagues.

    As many OCPA members may know, use of checks as a method of payment has fallen drastically in recent years.  At the same time, use of debit cards, PayPal and other forms of electronic payment has become the most common form of payment.  In keeping with this trend, at its October 2015 board meeting, OCPA adopted a new policy for payment of membership and meeting fees effective January 1, 2016.

    Forms of payment now accepted are:

    • Debit cards with Visa/MasterCard logo
    • Visa
    • MasterCard
    • American Express
    • Paypal

    Because electronic payments are generally safe and easy to use, the Board of Directors believe accepting electronic forms of payment will benefit OCPA members, including reducing wait time at meeting registration and protecting the financial health of OCPA.
