In the past weeks, we’ve been sharing quite a bit about #GivingTuesday – the global movement to counteract the strong consumerist messages of Black Friday and Cyber Monday by refocusing on the spirit of giving that is at the heart of the holiday season. The Family Dinner Project is proud to be a part of #GivingTuesday and to have been featured in their recent press release about the rapid growth of the movement:
“For #GivingTuesday 2014 more partners than ever are planning to activate their communities to support giving at events across the country. The number of partners has more than doubled from 2013, all with the shared goal of inspiring people to contribute to, and volunteer for, good causes…
Launching on #GivingTuesday, December 2, join Family Dinner Project to kick off #familydinnerforward, an initiative (and fun contest!) to inspire families to give – within the family to one another and/or to those outside the family. To participate, simply snap a dinner/giving-related photo and share it via Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #familydinnerforward. All photos tagged on Twitter or Instagram with #familydinnerforward between December 2-16 will be entered to win Lenox prizes. Two winners will be drawn at random and will receive four 4-piece plate settings of the Lenox Entertain 365 pattern of their choice (estimated value of $344-400 depending on pattern chosen).”
