Hey there change-makers and social impact enthusiasts!

As we dive into November, we've got an action-packed newsletter that's hotter than a freshly baked pumpkin pie (with extra whipped cream, of course). But first, did you know that Giving Tuesday, the day of global do-goodery, was initially inspired by two things: the desire to balance out all that Black Friday shopping and the fact that the average American consumes 4,500 calories on Thanksgiving? 🍗 So while you're plotting your social impact strategy, remember, it's all about giving back without the guilt of those extra holiday pounds.

In this month's newsletter, we're serving up a feast of ideas for your social impact initiatives. We'll help you plan for the big Giving Tuesday extravaganza and look into our crystal ball for a sneak peek at what 2024 has in store for the social impact scene. So grab your cape and your coffee; let's dive in.

1 // 2024 Predictions

Alright, folks, gather 'round! It's that time of year when our main brainiacs, Ben "Trendsetter" Sampson and Andy "Crystal Ball" VandenBerg, dish out some industry wisdom.

5 // Tired of sipping on "Eggnog-nog" at those run-of-the-mill holiday happy hours?

Don't get "wrapped up" in the same old festivities! This year, ditch the ho-ho-hum happy hours and "sleigh" it with us at a WeHero volunteer event!

'Tis the season to spread cheer in a new way! Trade in your "Merry-tinis" for meaningful moments, and swap the hangover for the high of making a real difference in the community. We guarantee you'll leave our events feeling a different kind of buzz – the kind that comes from giving back, connecting with others, and creating memories that last a lifetime. So say goodbye to the same-old-same-old, and hello to a holiday season filled with joy, purpose, and fun!

Join us for a holly, jolly good time that'll make your team "sleigh" those holiday blues.
