STS is pleased to be participating in the 2014 GivingTuesday Movement. 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, serves as a celebratory 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. Last year, more than 10,000 organizations in 46 countries came together celebrate GivingTuesday by supporting their favorite causes on GivingTuesday.
The success of School-to-School International’s GivingTuesday depends on the collective efforts of supporters like you! You are the most important part of making this movement a reality. We hope each of you will share STS’s success broadly with your friends, family, and extended networks.
