Did you know about #GivingTuesday? I must admit before working here, I did not.
So, what is it? Just a hashtag for the kids? Some new dance craze? No way. #GivingTuesday is a global day to give back, and one of the fastest growing fundraisers in America. The idea is that it’s a response to the mass spending we see over Black Friday & Cyber Monday. To counter those colossal numbers, ($50 billion spent in 2014) we spend a day celebrating generosity by giving! Check out this infographic (that some naive intern thought would only take 2 hours to create!):
Since September a lot of time, energy, and fun has been invested in this year’s #GivingTuesday campaign. We even came up with a new, alternative way to make a donation that is also a personalized gift. If you’d like to learn more about #GivingTuesday, make your first gift, or find out more head over to our page here -> http://bit.ly/1HKcVtH
No matter where you are this season, I hope that today you’ll take a moment to celebrate the generosity in your own life.
Happy holidays, y’all.
