You have no doubt heard of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. What you may not have heard of though is Giving Tuesday. It’s always a good time to give back, but this is a day entirely dedicated to it.
What is Giving Tuesday
Founded in 2012 by New York’s 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation, Giving Tuesday is observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. This year it will be November 27th. Taking a different direction than Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is about giving back to the community.
With the power of social media and collaboration, people all over the world are able to encourage each other to donate their time and resources back to their communities during the holiday season. Over 300 million dollars were raised in 2017 alone.
Printi’s Giving Tuesday Campaign
This year, Printi will be partnering with One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization focused on global reforestation. For every purchase at Printi on Tuesday, Printi will donate to this organization. One order, one tree!
One Tree Planted was founded in Shelburne, Vermont in 2014 with a mission to make it simple for people to help the environment. One dollar = one tree planted.
One Tree Planted pools the donations for each project and send the funds to their reforestation partners. Partners go through a vetting process to ensure a tree survival rate of 80%-90%. Depending on the project and location, partners choose the best tree species to plant and work with local communities to get them in the ground.
Join us this November 27th and give back to your community on Giving Tuesday!
