First Candle offers a call to action!
Everyone knows "Black Friday" and "Cyber Monday." This year, #GivingTuesday takes its place on the calendar as a new national day of giving around the annual shopping and spending season.
We hope we can count on you!
Please consider First Candle as your charity of choice for #GivingTuesday!
Just as the retail sector has benefited from coordinating national shopping days around the holidays, #GivingTuesday wants to do the same thing for giving by uniting under one common purpose – charity.
This is not a new giving platform, but a call to action, with a goal to help #GivingTuesday become a major part of the holiday season, placing giving upfront in November rather than an afterthought in December or the New Year. The campaign provides a framework for Americans to contribute to their community and favorite charities and help make this season the biggest giving season yet.
