How they are participating
Tykoon Nation is passionate about building a money-smart world and in developing a new generation of philanthropists. Tykoon is proud to partner with #GivingTuesday and we pledge to promote #GivingTuesday through our various digital and social media outlets.
In addition, on #GivingTuesday, Tykoon will be hosting an event in an effort to raise awareness about NYC's homelessness epidemic which is at an all-time high. The event will benefit two local organizations - Covenant House and Coalition for the Homeless. Speakers will include members of each of the organizations as well as Stuart Ellman, the 92Y Board President and Managing Partner of RRE Ventures. The event will seek to not only raise awareness on the issue but to also collect funds, signatures for a petition campaign, and donated goods such as Gift Cards, Twin Size sheets, Comforters, Toiletries, Jeans, Sneakers, Pajamas, Slippers and Robes (sizes and items for teens, both boys and girls).
