Last week, the nation got together to give thanks. Today, we get together to give back! With another Black Friday and Cyber Monday behind us, there is no better time to take a short breather from the holiday haze of commercialization and consumerism. Don’t get me wrong—a $79 Dyson pet vacuum is certainly something to be excited about, but we hope you’ll look beyond your shopping lists, if only for today. Instead, let’s channel our giving spirit to a bigger cause.
A Global Day of Giving
Giving Tuesday (#givingtuesday) is relatively new to the realm of hashtag activism, but it’s already making a big impact around the world. Conceived in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y and the U.N. Foundation, this growing movement is credited with moving over $270 million to worthy charities last year alone. During a season known best for early bird bargains, reindeer decorations, and (far too much) pie, it’s refreshing to see a philanthropic initiative like this thrive.
Close to Home Causes
Over the past few years, ACS Creative has been fortunate and honored to work with some truly incredible non-profits. Through the course of these projects, their causes became our own. The passion they exude and belief in their mission is exciting and contagious. We hope after learning more about the organizations below, you will find it in your heart to join us in supporting that passion on this very special Tuesday!
Your monetary contributions will help these causes continue doing good for our families, our communities, and the world around us. Be sure to spread the word of #GivingTuesday and let’s make TODAY the biggest and best one yet! Tomorrow, we see what that Dyson can do…
