I'm not a big fan of Black Friday. I can kind of get behind Small Business Saturday. Cyber Monday just seems like a plain old Monday back behind my laptop. But #GivingTuesday?...here's something special. Now we're talking!
In the past few years, the way #GivingTuesday has worked is that Americans go nuts spending their expendable (or not-so-expendable) income in the days following Thanksgiving on presents for the upcoming holidays. Then, they give back to their local or global community by making contributions to their favorite charities. #GivingTuesday is a celebratory day to kick off the giving season, when many people make their holiday and end-of-year charitable gifts.
We're attracted to the 2-for-1 deals of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday because we can make our money go farther. Well, guess what? This year, Shot@Life has got a smokin' hot charitable deal for you!
Shot@Life, the UN Foundation campaign to bring life-saving vaccines to children around the world, is partnering with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to bring you a one day only 2-for-1 deal for this #GivingTuesday, December 2.
So, on December 2nd, consider vaccinating one or more children against pneumonia at www.shotatlife.org/donate, then telling the world why you did it by posting an "#UnSelfie" picture (like the one here) with your reason to inspire others to do the same. Join me in saving lives on the most unselfish day of the holiday season.
