MUNICH (MunichNOW NEWS) — We recently heard from our friends at Turning Tables/Thrive International about an event here in Munich that really deserves support! We certainly agree that the spirit of Thanksgiving is being lost in all the deal-making and deal-shopping associated with this family holiday in the US.
While the holiday has not gone global, the shopping and deals have – as seen in shops and stores right here in Munich — and, of course, at Amazon on line. #GivingTuesday is way for all of us to do something about this in a very positive way.
What is #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. After a successful launch of #GivingTuesday last year, we celebrate the day of giving this year again in Germany on the 29. November 2016.
Join the event!
On the 29th of November 2016 we are hosting an evening filled with actions for #GivingTuesday in Munich!
Meet us at the Impact Hub München in Gotzingerstrasse 8, 81371 Munich!
From 7 to 10 pm you can get to know THRIVE International e.V. and 10 additional organisations which focus on different topics.
