Today, TriplePundit, Benevity, Google, and Giving Tuesday came together for a special Twitter Chat at #GivingEveryDay, exploring how companies can lead a culture of goodness through employee giving and volunteering all year round.
Giving Tuesday, celebrated after the retail extravaganza of Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, has grown into an incredible movement in a short period of time. It proves to us that individuals are hungry for opportunities to give back. So, what if it wasn’t just one day a year?
What if the Giving Tuesday movement grew into a rallying cry of giving back to one’s community every day of the year? And how can companies serve as a leader in making that a reality?
During #GivingEveryDay, we addressed the following topics, and more:
