Support Willow House on #GivingTuesday
#GivingTuesday inspires personal philanthropy and encourages bigger, better and smarter charitable giving during the holiday season, showing that the world truly gives as good as it gets. The third annual #GivingTuesday will take place on December 2, 2014.
Where did the idea come from? The retail industry has long benefited from seasonal shopping that symbolically kicks off with “Black Friday” – a day that has since inspired “Small Business Saturday” and “Cyber Monday.” #GivingTuesday, then, serves as a celebratory, fully connected day to kick off the giving season, when many make their holiday and end-of-year charitable gifts.
#GivingTuesday brings together diverse networks of people, large corporations, small businesses and nonprofits across an ever-expanding range of new media platforms to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness in the service of changing our world for the better. #GivingTuesday is not a new giving platform, but a call to action to celebrate giving and encourage more, better and smarter giving during the Holiday
Season. It’s an organizing principle to encourage the creativity and energy of people all over the world to work together for good. The success of #GivingTuesday depends on the collective efforts of a unique group of partners and their participation. You are the most important part of making this movement a reality.
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.
