The East Valley Boys & Girls Club has joined #GivingTuesday, a first-of- its-kind effort that harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners— charities, families, businesses, and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.
Coinciding with the Thanksgiving holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better and smarter ways to the charities and causes they support, and help create a better world.
#GivingTuesday takes place on December 2, 2014—the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. It harnesses the power of social media to create a national moment around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are now synonymous with holiday shopping.
