I’m not making this up. Yesterday (December 1) was national Eat a Red Apple Day.
I celebrated in my own way by opening the cart to my Catalog Carnival. It’s a popular product that always sells out (who doesn’t like to review a benefit auction catalog or two?), and yesterday seemed like a great way to honor a day that seems tailor-made for my company.
Grab a benefit auction catalog set, if any remain.
And today is #GivingTuesday™ (#GT), a movement launched by the 92nd Street Y in New York to create a national day of giving to kick off the giving season on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
2014 represents the third time GivingTuesday has been celebrated. In the same way that retail stores take part in Black Friday, the giving community has been encouraged to come together to launch their own campaigns.
Yesterday I received emails from two clients launching their GivingTuesday campaigns. Both Food & Friends and Girls Inc. of the Washington, DC Metro Area sent out emails. I expect to see even more today.
Are you doing anything special?
