Arbor Associates Supports “Small Business Saturday” on 11/25/17 & “#GivingTuesday” on 11/28/17!
You know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but have you heard of Small Business Saturday (#shopsmall) and Giving Tuesday (officially known as #GivingTuesday)? These two movements have gained much popularity in the last few years as a way to allow consumers a way to engage in philanthropy, community service, and support one’s local community in the midst of shopping for gifts. We encourage you to learn more and participate locally!
Need a unique gift for that hard-to-buy for friend or just something basic for yourself? You can avoid the big box stores and support your local economy at the same time by shopping at your local, independently-owned shops on Small Business Saturday, November 24th. Learn more or find participating retailers in your area here.
#GivingTuesday began in 2011 at the famed 92nd Street Y in NYC and was created by the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social impact as a way to focus on community service and charitable giving during the holiday season. Any official 501(c)3 organization in the U.S. can participate and create a #GivingTuesday campaign. Are you part of a #GivingTuesday campaign? Let us know!
