We know there are too many great deals out there for everyone to avoid the blitz of consumerism that is Black Friday and Cyber Monday. But, after the shopping rush and bargain chasing, wouldn’t it be awesome if everyone gave back just a little to help those in need?
You won’t see any “Black Friday” crazy deals from ZumaOffice.com. The world really doesn’t need another special offer on office supplies. Instead, we view this season as a time to give thanks for the beauty, blessings and good in the world, and then help others through supporting a favorite charity or community activity that truly makes a difference.
So what exactly is #GivingTuesday? Here’s a perfect summary from the #GivingTuesday website.
“We have a day for giving thanks. We have two days for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.”
At Zuma, we kick off #GivingTuesday by launching our 4th Annual Capital Area Food Bank Food Drive in conjunction with Vandegrift High School. It helps feed hungry Central Texans and sure feels good knowing it makes a difference, (the last two years we’ve raised almost 6,000 pounds of food – that’s about 4,950 meals!).
Jump into the joy of the season, and consider what you, your business and your family can do for others this #GivingTuesday!
