others get involved with GivingTuesday
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 26, 2014
Calgary, Canada – Place2Give is proud to announce that they are joining the GivingTuesday movement for a second year in a row. GivingTuesday is a global movement 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.
Taking place December 2, 2014 – the Tuesday after Black Friday and Cyber Monday – GivingTuesday harnesses the power of social good (and social media) to create a national movement around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how the shopping days have become synonymous with holiday shopping. This year, there is a special initiative led by members of the Calgary community to promote GivingTuesday on a local level - GivingTuesdayYYC. In addition to Place2Give, partners include the Calgary Public Library, Acts of Random Kindness, Bgenerus, and the Calgary Chamber of Voluntary Organizations.
