Hi WeHero fam! Apologies that our newsletter is coming out a bit later this month. We know many of you were coming back from some (much needed) vacation. We wanted you to have the opportunity to unpack that inbox.

The beginning of September is always a special time in the world of corporate social impact. A time when we wrap up our summer breaks and recognize the goals we have for the remainder of the year. How close are we to reaching our employee engagement targets? How are our holiday campaign plans looking? Should I buy that giant reindeer at Costco while it's on sale? These are all questions that we’re resting with. Lucky for you, we’re here to support you in reaching every single one of those goals (even the reindeer) as we prepare for the biggest social impact season of the year!

Let's dive in

1 // September Forecast - Planning For End Of Year Volunteering and Employee Engagement Starts Now

We talk a lot with our partners and clients about rolling boulders downhill, not up. When it comes to employee engagement and corporate volunteering, that means planning volunteer experiences during times of the year when employees already want to volunteer. This results in increased participation, increased engagement, and more IMPACT!

Social impact days to have on your radar

After the Second World War, The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted, which represents the first global expression of rights to which all human beings are inherently entitled. It is an acknowledgment that we should remember and understand the value of each human being, regardless of their nationality, color, race, sex, gender, country of origin, language, or otherwise.

Veterans Day is a federal holiday in the United States observed annually on November 11, honoring military veterans of the United States Armed Forces. It coincides with other holidays including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I.

Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
