Give back for #GivingTuesday

November 26, 2012

Are you fatigued from Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Feel like the holiday season means less about what you can give and more about what you can get?

This year, we hope you will join us in helping to create #GivingTuesday™, the giving season’s opening day.

Tomorrow, (November 27, 2012) charities, families, businesses and individuals are coming together to transform the way people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.

It’s so simple! First, figure out how your organization, family, or company can give back. Then tell everyone about how you are participating in #GivingTuesday!

The President and CEO of Goodwill Industries International, Jim Gibbons, recently shared his thoughts on giving back on #GivingTuesday. Click here to read the article – we love what he shared about giving back.

You can support your community through Goodwill in a variety of ways — donate, volunteer or lend your voice through advocacy. Most people know Goodwill as a brand name for its stores, but the basis of our mission is to provide people with disadvantages and disabilities opportunities to obtain employment, which is essential to improving health, educational attainment and equity. As an organization, we know that true progress comes from the economic growth and stability of communities.

If you volunteer, donate to Goodwill, or shop at Goodwill, you support people like Lisa, who has hope and is financially stable after dealing with depression and a layoff. Because of her success, Lisa won our Good Work Award earlier this year.

So, how will you celebrate #GivingTuesday? We hope you will consider shopping at, donating to, or volunteering with Goodwill.
