Taking 16 Days of Action Against Gender Violence

16_days_multi_sm.jpg

November 25, International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, draws attention to the ongoing physical and mental abuse inflicted on millions of women. But just as this suffering lasts for more than a single day, so must the efforts to raise awareness about it – and so we join together for 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence. Running from November 25, International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women,through December 10, International Human Rights Day, the campaign makes the critical link that violence against women is a violation of human rights.

Get Out the Give on the First Annual #GivingTuesday!

Lend a hand on #GivingTuesday!

The retail sector has benefited for years from coordinating national shopping days around the holidays. Everyone knows “Black Friday” or “Cyber Monday.” This year, however, something unique will take place on Tuesday, November 27, 2012.  It’s being called #GivingTuesday, and with your help it will make history. Our goal is to launch a day of giving at the start of the annual holiday shopping season and to show that holiday shopping can be about both giving and giving back.
