This year we are taking time off on Black Friday and Cyber Monday to be with our families. A short time off before we really jump into the holiday season .
We are excited to be a part of Giving Tuesday which is on December 1st. We will be putting several items on sale and donating 10% of all the sales from Monday Nov. 30th and Tuesday Dec. 1st locally here in Nashville to the Oasis Center and globally to the Syrian refugee crisis through Simply Kind
Giving Tuesday is a global partnership of over 30,000 joining in to give back this holiday season including small businesses like us, major corporations, and non-profits from around the world. So far there are 68 countries represented.
We chose to give locally to Oasis Center whose mission is "to build a community where all young people enter adulthood connected with positive social support systems and prepared for productive and fulfilling lives. We embrace our responsibility to change the odds in our community that will allow more young people to thrive and move into a healthy adulthood."
We chose to give globally through Simply Kind which connects kind people to simple, short-term emergency relief projects. Simply Kind carefully selects the projects and organizations they connect with based on its Charity Navigator rating to ensure the authenticity and transparency of the organization and to make sure your gift makes the maximum impact. Simply Kind is currently working to bring aid to the Syrian refugees who have lost so much.
About Giving Tuesday: Now in its fourth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog of resources. As a global movement, #GivingTuesday unites countries around the world by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.
