You’ve definitely heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but did you know today is Giving Tuesday? Giving Tuesday is a new holiday focused on giving back. We spend so much time at Thanksgiving saying and showing what we are thankful for and on Black Friday and Cyber Monday buying more things to be thankful for, but what about giving back? Because, really, that’s what the holiday season is all about.
Giving Tuesday officially kicks off the giving season. It’s a simple idea. Find a way for your family, your community, your company, or your organization to join in acts of giving. Tell everyone you can about what you are doing and why it matters. Join a national celebration of our great tradition of generosity.
Giving Tuesday officially launched in September, and the social networks has turned #GivingTuesday into a powerful digital movement with over 2,500 partners in 50 states and over 1,000 social media ambassadors who are ready to engage their communities around giving.
At Social Vision Marketing, we give our time and energy to AC PAW Animal Rescue every day. AC PAW is a non-profit animal rescue that is 100% volunteer based. They have been rescuing sick and unwanted dogs and cats in northern Michigan since 1995. We have been working with AC PAW for almost three years. It has been an honor to work with such an amazing organization, so today on #GivingTuesday, we are giving to AC PAW.
Who will you be giving to today or this holiday season?
If you’d like to give to AC PAW, they are always in need of pet food and supplies or monetary donations. You can find out more by visiting their website at www.acpaw.org.
