We have a day for giving thanks with family and friends, and two full days for getting great deals while shopping. Now it’s time to commemorate a day that celebrates giving back.
What began as a charitable answer to the consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday has evolved from a small grassroots movement to a comprehensive global campaign. With the goal of driving donations of money, time, and attention to worthy causes, the day seeks to encourage smarter charitable giving during the holiday season.
Today marks the second annual Giving Tuesday, and what better way to make your holiday and end-of-year charitable gifts than to get in #TheGoodEffect with Goodwill of Orange County!
The Good Effect happens when you empower people to work. When individuals gain independence through employment, they contribute to their families and local communities. And these thriving communities make better decisions for people, the planet, and our future.
There are plenty of ways you can help multiply #TheGoodEffect on #GivingTuesday. Whether it’s donating your gently used items, shopping for holiday gifts at your local Goodwill of Orange County, or making a financial contribution online, your philanthropy helps support our mission — helping people with barriers to employment get and keep jobs.
Be a part of a national celebration of generosity! Tweet us at @OCGoodwill or leave a comment below to tell us how you plan to give back to the community on #GivingTuesday.
