Giving Tuesday What is Giving Tuesday? It is often described as a global day or a global generosity movement held each year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. This very powerful movement in 2022 alone for nonprofits in the U.S. has raised $3.1 Billion. For people to get involved on Giving Tuesday they can always donate their time, or items, or make a donation to nonprofit organizations. Every little bit of help matters. For the Mariee Wallace Museum we are doing a $15,000 Goal for Double Your Dollars until December 31st, 2023. We are doing well in reaching that goal thanks to all of you and we appreciate every donation as we try to reach this goal and we are very thankful for all of our Members and Supporters.


#thisdayinhistory On April 19, 1995, at 9:02 a.m. a 4,800-pound ammonium nitrate–fuel oil bomb exploded in a Ryder truck parked at the north entrance of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City, killing 168 people and injuring approximately 850. At the time, the bombing was the nation’s worst single act of domestic terrorism. The governor’s office reported that 30 children were orphaned, 219 children lost at least one parent, 462 people were left homeless, and 7,000 people lost their workplace. The City of Oklahoma City’s Final Report estimated property damage to more than 300 buildings in a 48-square-block area.
