Preserve the Pensions War of 1812 is proud to announce that we have joined #GivingTuesday, a first of its kind effort that will harness the collective power of a unique blend of partners – charities, families, businesses and individuals – to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff to the holiday season, #GivingTuesday will inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support and help create a better world. Taking place December 2, 2014 – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – #GivingTuesday will harness the power of social media to create a national moment around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become the days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping.
We have joined over 10,000 organizations around the world to enhance the philanthropic sector as a whole, and everyone can participate! #GivingTuesday is an initiative to start the giving season and we encourage everyone to be involved with it.
Give time, give effort, give a contribution.
