#GivingTuesday is quickly becoming a new holiday tradition. What started in 2012 as the philanthropic community’s answer to Black Friday and Cyber Monday has blossomed into an inspiring movement that kicks off a global season of giving.
This year on Dec. 2, #GivingTuesday also kicks off PayPal’s commitment to match 1% of all donations made through the Giving Fund this December. The Giving Fund is a partnership between PayPal and eBay that provides nonprofits with new fundraising opportunities through their well-established communities.
This means your donation to Sustainable America will go even further this month!
How We Use Your Donations
Sustainable America relies on charitable donations to fund initiatives that help build sustainable food and fuel systems, like our I Turn It Off anti-idling campaign and educational infographics. Donations will also help support our efforts to organize Strike Out Hunger events in 2015, where we rescue food in danger of being wasted and use it to feed hungry people. Please remember us when you’re planning your year-end giving.
More Ways to Give
What’s great about #GivingTuesday is how it’s a day for everyone to give in their own way. Here are more great ways to give and support Sustainable America’s work. Let us know what you choose to do by posting a picture on Twitter or Instagram tagged with #unselfie.
• Ask a friend to pledge to stop idling: Join our campaign to end unnecessary vehicle idling by pledging to stop idling at iturnitoff.com. Make your pledge count even more by asking a friend to pledge too. Or, order a bumper sticker so you can spread the word wherever you go. You’ll contribute to cleaner air in your community and help reduce our dependence on foreign oil!
• Support sustainable food in your area: Put your money where you mouth is, literally, by choosing to buy food from local farms, CSAs, or stores who offer local, sustainably produced products. Or, try growing some yourself.
• Commit to reducing food waste: Whether you shop smarter, eat that last bit of leftover turkey in your fridge, or start composting, there are many ways to make an impact on our nation’s food waste problem that will also leave more money in your pocket.
