GEEARS Annual Fundraising Luncheon featuring Jen Hatmaker

Event Date : Giving Tuesday, November 28, 2023 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM

GEEARS was an influencer before that was a thing. 

For more than a decade, the Georgia Early Education Alliance for Ready Students has stoked Georgians’ passion for supporting young children, their families, and the educators who care for them. We’ve informed and empowered early childhood advocates with our own research. We’ve rallied a powerful network to help improve our state’s early childhood systems.  

Wildly successful author, blogger, and speaker Jen Hatmaker influences with the same values. She uses her vast platform to promote empathy, inclusivity, and joy. She aims, as she puts it, “to inspire you to be delighted, find hope and humor, build connection, and keep going.” 

We’re thrilled to announce that Jen will headline GEEARS’ Annual Fundraising Luncheon, lending her influence—as well as her humor, wisdom, and good old Southern storytelling chops—to a very special Giving Tuesday event.
