As a business, we appreciate holiday shopping but we can't help but feel that the materialistic excesses surrounding Thanksgiving have gone a little too far. How have we reached the point where people will spend the one day of the year where we celebrate being thankful by shopping for bargains at the local mall?
Therefore, after the frenzy of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we're pleased to celebrate a day where conspicuous consumption can give way to conspicuous compassion.
#GivingTuesday is a day when individuals, charities, families, businesses, and communities from around the world come together for one singular purpose: to celebrate generosity and give back to those who need our help. It's a simple idea. Just find some way to give back.
Today, we hope that you'll join us in this tradition of charity and generosity.
Here at Ivory Row, we'll be supporting an incredible organization that's very close to our hearts, Baby Buggy.
With a motto of "Love Recycled," Baby Buggy's mission is to help families in dire need get access to the essentials needed to ensure their safety and well-being. By providing concrete resources through a network of social service professionals, Baby Buggy helps alleviate the stress of raising children in poverty. Over the past 13 years, Baby Buggy has donated nearly 8 million items to hundreds of thousands of families in need. The work provided by Baby Buggy not only provides immediate assistance to families but also provides the tools and programs that parents need to build a long-term foundation for success.
We choose to support Baby Buggy. However, there are millions of charities and organizations that can use your support. Learn more about how you, your family, your community and your organization can help those in need by visiting #GivingTuesday.
