Giving Tuesday Initiative

United Way 
On December 2, 2014, United Way will be joining the #GivingTuesday initiative to encourage people to give and to volunteer in their local communities.  This national movement is dedicated to asking people to give back in the same way that Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become synonymous with holiday shopping.  #GivingTuesday relies heavily on social media to inspire people to take action and to support the non-profit of their choice.

In just a few days we will have a #GivingTuesdayMarathonCounty page on our website that will encourage local giving and volunteering. We are planning a social media blitz beginning next week and if you would like to join us in promoting #GivingTuesdayMarathonCounty via your social media and traditional channels, we will provide a link to your website or donation site from #GivingTuesdayMarathonCounty page. That page will also include links to various volunteering opportunities across the community, examples of ways to give time and treasure, etc. Together, we can spread the word about the importance of giving locally and supporting causes that you are passionate about.

If you want to join us in this promotion, please contact Sue Haupt as soon as possible. We will need either your website address or the url for your donation site if you have one. Sue will also forward more information on dates, when things will go live, etc.

Please give Sue a call if you have any questions, concerns, suggestions, or creative ideas for #GivingTuesdayMarathonCounty.

Thanks for all the terrific things you are doing to build a stronger Marathon County.
