Giving Tuesday, Do It For the Freaks, Geeks, and Mermaids!

November 30 is #GivingTuesday, a global movement that reimagines a world built upon shared humanity and generosity.

Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, we all have learned an invaluable lesson — that we’re stronger together than we are alone. During this time, communities, organizations, families, and friends reached out to each other for comfort and assistance, and the strength of those bonds gave us the gift of hope.

Almost 2 years later, it’s more important than ever to show up for our communities and the organizations that sustain them. Coney Island USA has been an integral part of our south Brooklyn neighborhood for almost 40 years, helping to attract the visitors and tourists that are the lifeblood of the local businesses. We also work tirelessly to safeguard the iconic landmarks and unique traditions of the past, while forging a new path forward into the future.

As we approach the end of 2021, everyone at Coney Island USA is so grateful for our friends, family, and all those folks who supported our mission by attending a live show or online program, or with a donation.

On #GivingTuesday 2021, please consider making a tax-deductible gift to support Coney Island USA. Your generosity will assist us in our commitment to defend the honor of American popular culture with creative programming and signature events, like the Mermaid Parade, that have been the hallmark of our organization—past, present, and future.
