You may be familiar with Black Friday and Cyber Monday – and possibly even Small Business Saturday. But this year, there’s something new that the team at Mixed Bag Designs is really excited about. #GivingTuesday is a brand new campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations. Tuesday, November 27 is a fantastic opportunity to give back and start the holiday season off on a positive note.
#GivingTuesday is a great way for everyone to work together with family and friends and dedicate even a moment (or the whole day!) to the multitude of charities and causes they support. The initiative is supported by big names like Skype, Unilever, Microsoft and the United Nations Foundation, among others. You don’t have to something huge, it’s the little things that count. Commit to volunteer on November 27, or you can get your employer involved by asking if they’ll match employees’ contributions to your chosen charity, or you can organize a special event in your community that will support your favorite cause.
