First Black Friday. Then Cyber Monday. Now Giving Tuesday! With one commercial holiday after another, it’s easy to get caught up in the season of shopping, instead of the season of giving.
This year, while you’re out scouring for deals on things to purchase for your loved ones, take a moment to find ways to protect your loved ones: Participate in Giving Tuesday, and give your community the gift they deserve.
For the fifth year, SACE has joined #Giving Tuesday– a global day of giving that aims to harness the collective power of a unique blend of partners – charities, families, businesses and individuals – to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season.
Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kick-off of the holiday shopping season, Giving Tuesday reminds us that this is the time to pay it forward. It inspires us to take collaborative action now, to help ourselves and help our communities improve quality of life throughout the country.
During the most generous season of the year, #GivingTuesday is an excuse to give back in better, smarter ways to the causes you support, in order to help create a better world.
On November 28th, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, you can join others around the country and encourage spending with a purpose. Join us in this movement in an effort to change the way we produce and consume energy in the Southeast by supporting the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy.
If you are reading this blog, you are already helping to create a better world by staying up to date on critical energy issues that are affecting you and this region. We are thankful for everything you do to support responsible energy choices that will lead to a cleaner, safer and healthier world. Thank you for being a voice for clean energy.
