CLEVELAND, Ohio – The Holiday Season fills us with joy and the spirit of giving. Nowhere is that more evident than through charitable giving. Project EverGreen has joined two programs – #GivingTuesday and AmazonSmile – that make giving to Project EverGreen easier than ever.
#GivingTuesday is a national effort designed to help nonprofit organizations raise money using social media during the holiday season. #GivingTuesday, which hopes to harness the power of social media to create a national movement dedicated to giving, similar to Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping, takes place on Dec. 3, 2013, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
Project EverGreen is asking supporters and partners to share the #GivingTuesday message with co-workers, employees, families and friends.
The second opportunity for giving comes from online sales giant Amazon.com. All shoppers need to do is visit the www.smile.amazon.com website and select Project EverGreen as their organization of choice. A percentage of the products purchased on Amazon will be donated to Project EverGreen. In other words, Project EverGreen benefits from the purchases people were going to make anyway. It doesn’t cost any extra and there are no hidden fees.
