Freshwater Future Joins the National #GivingTuesday Movement to Encourage Spending with a Purpose

Posted on October 15, 2014 by

Freshwater Future has 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 U.S. Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping 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 days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping.

We hope you will join us by including Freshwater Future and the health of the Great Lakes region in your #GivingTuesday plans.  We will be very active on social media leading up to and on the day of December 2, providing supporters ways to make a difference for our precious freshwater.
