San Diego, California – Sunfood has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Occurring this year on November 29, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
Sunfood is partnering with Feeding San Diego, a local organization that provides meals for 63,000 children, families and seniors in need each week. Sunfood will be donating 5% of their sales from Black Friday weekend to Feeding San Diego. As a business located in San Diego, Sunfood is looking to give back to the local community. By purchasing Sunfood products you can contribute to Feed San Diego and #GivingTuesday.
“This is a great opportunity for Sunfood to have a positive and meaningful impact on our local community. The message of #GivingTuesday resonates strongly with me and everyone here – we felt it was our duty to participate. We’re lucky to have such a highly reputable and successful organization like Feeding San Diego be our partner, and look forward to a long future of working together,” said Robert Dupree the CEO of Sunfood.
92Y − a cultural center in New York City that, since 1874, has been bringing people together around its core values of community service and giving back − conceptualized #GivingTuesday as a new way of linking individuals and causes to strengthen communities and encourage giving. In 2015, the fourth year of the movement, #GivingTuesday brought together over 45,000 partners in 71 countries and helped raise nearly $117 Million online in the US alone.
“We have been incredibly inspired by the generosity in time, efforts and ideas that have brought our concept for a worldwide movement into reality,” said Henry Timms, founder of #GivingTuesday and executive director of 92Y. “As we embark on our fifth year of #GivingTuesday, we are encouraged by the early response from partners eager to continue making an impact in this global conversation.”
