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.
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. Thanks to our pals at Social Impact World, they even let a virtual audience eavesdrop on the fun. So grab your popcorn, because it's prediction time! 🎥
One of the biggest social impact days of the year is upon us and we're offering valuable tips for Giving Tuesday events to maximize employee engagement and participation in corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives.
