#GivingTuesday is a national day of giving. The idea behind it is to kickoff the holiday-giving season in the same way that Black Friday and Cyber Monday kickoff the holiday-shopping season. Launched in 2012, organizers hoped to convince 100 partners to join the experiment; 2,500 partners signed on. This year, more than 12,000 partner organizations in the U.S. and in more than a dozen countries around the world will come together to make December 2, 2014 — #GivingTuesday — a day dedicated not only to giving back, but to the power of community.
This year, Malvern is participating! The Mayor has written a proclamation declaring December 2nd #GivingTuesdayMalvern. Particpating local businesses will donate a percentage sales for that day to Baker.
Come to Malvern on Giving Tuesday and spend, spend, spend at the participating shops and restaurants!
Ultimately, the #GivingTuesday message is simple: Give back, and encourage others around you to give back to our shared community, which benefits us all.
