What is #GivingTuesday?
Giving Tuesday, often stylized as #GivingTuesday for purposes of hashtag activism, refers to the Tuesday after U.S. Thanksgiving in the United States. It is a movement to create an international day of giving at the beginning of the Christmas and holiday season. Giving Tuesday was started in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation as a response to commercialization and consumerism in the post-Thanksgiving season.
Unlike Black Friday, Small Business Saturday & Cyber Monday the shopping holiday serves charities and non profits. There are thousands of non profits in the US that focus on many different issues in the community. Our team at Prediq Media has always been purpose driven. Our CEO, Alex Oliveira, has been working with non profits since 2000. He has served on dozens of Boards and Committees throughout the years. We give to non profits all year round. One of our programs is called Cause Marketing Project. This is a collaboration between Alex and Florida Atlantic University. If chosen non profits stand to receive over $25,000 worth of Digital Marketing services. Non profits may apply here.
