#GivingTuesday: This history & how to help non-profits

giving tuesday 2015

By Lisa Ackerman

What comes after Thanksgiving Thursday? First, Black Friday. Then, Cyber Monday and don’t forget #GivingTuesday! Today is a day to support nonprofit organizations across the country.

Just as Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become traditions in the United States, organizers are seeing #GivingTuesday as a tradition celebrating the joy of giving. What does it mean to give? It’s different for each of us. Some of us give money, some give time, some give resources and some give their passion toward helping a cause.

This History:  the first #GivingTuesday started November 27, 2012.  #GivingTuesday is your annual opportunity to tell everyone what and who you support and why it is important. You can opt to support TACA and for families living with autism in a variety of ways – you can donate, volunteer, provide a valuable service or lend your voice through advocacy.

Now – how you can help: this year TACA has been selected to collaborate with Volcom. We are grateful for their support. Here is how this will work:

  • Make any purchase in store at Volcom or www.volcom.com on December 1, 2015.
  • All purchases will receive a limited edition Volcom/TACA sticker.
  • Volcom will contribute 5% of your Volcom.com purchase to TACA to provide support and hope to families with autism.

Special thanks to Volcom for their help and for TACA supporters to help share the message of #GivingTuesday.

To help:  Shop Volcom today at www.volcom.com
