Wondering how some organizations are embracing the #GivingTuesday movement and getting involved? In this post, Andrew Schrage, the editor of Money Crashers, explains what they’re doing for #GivingTuesday and how they’re doing it, too.
1. Why did Money Crashers decide to become a #GivingTuesday partner?
Money Crashers decided to participate in the GivingTuesday campaign because giving back to the community is one of our 11 Indispensable Principles of a Money Crasher. For those who have their finances in order and have the means to do so, giving back to the community is very important. We firmly believe in the concept of goodwill, and becoming involved in GivingTuesday is one way we display that.
2. What is Money Crashers planning for #GivingTuesday?
We haven’t yet devised a specific campaign, but one idea we’re considering is to launch an initiative that will provide budding entrepreneurs some financial assistance in order to get their ideas off the ground. We understand that small business is the backbone of our economy, so this initiative will support that aspect.
3. What are you doing to get your readers involved in this initiative?
We plan to do some promotions of GivingTuesday via social media, where we have quite a significant presence. We’ve donated some money to the cause as well. And for those businesses out there considering donating to the cause, remember that there are tax deductions for charitable contributions as well, so it’s a no-brainer!
