Everyone knows about Black Friday and its popular online version, Cyber Monday. But, how many have heard of #GivingTuesday? It’s a movement to create a national day of giving and on Tuesday, December 3, families, businesses, communities, companies and organizations are encouraged to donate their time or money to a specific cause.
Penfield is getting involved in #GivingTuesday with the “Up n’ Go” Campaign, an effort to raise money to purchase an Up n’ Go Toddler Gait Trainer. This piece of equipment helps build strength and balance for children with lower extremity disabilities. Visit our fundraising page and see how a gait trainer has helped Mario become more independent:
Because #GivingTuesday is a national celebration of generosity, it is a highly publicized event on social media. On December 3, Penfield will actively participate in the conversation on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #GivingTuesday to promote the campaign and drive visitors to the giving page throughout the day.
And…you have the opportunity to promote the campaign on December 3 and the days leading up to it! Participate in conversations on Penfield’s Facebook page, share posts and pictures and retweet. Tell your friends and family about the campaign and help raise awareness of Penfield’s mission. Your support of this campaign will help more children, just like Mario, push beyond their limits, stand up, and walk.
