You may have heard about #GivingTuesday over the last couple of years. Thousands of non-profits, businesses large and small, social media platforms, celebrities, government officials and, of course, the Sons of Italy® have joined forces to promote December 2, 2014 as this year’s national day of giving in the United States.
The #GivingTuesday movement is a reminder that the hectic time between Thanksgiving and the new year, when Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals and the holidays are on the brain, is a perfect time to give a little more.
Consider broadening your impact by helping a Sons of Italy® national charity this year. Specially designated by Sons of Italy® leadership, the Cooley’s Anemia Foundation, the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism and the Alzheimer’s Association all receive financial contributions from the Sons of Italy® and all work hard to fight diseases and disorders that can affect us all. Each also relies on volunteer efforts.
Whether you make a charitable donation, volunteer or help a stranger, please take time this #GivingTuesday to be part of this national celebration honoring our great tradition of generosity. Then spread the word about how you are giving – and inspire others. Remember to use the hashtags #unselfie, #SonsofItaly and #GivingTuesday if you tweet or post on Facebook.
