If you are looking for a gift that gives back this holiday season, or just a really awesome present for yourself or someone in your life, I’ve got you covered. Are you ready?
As you may know, Tuesday, November 29th is #GivingTuesday. It’s a global day of giving that promotes charitable acts of kindness to bring people together and help drive positive change. The tradition of #GivingTuesday began a few years ago, and is celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It is meant to help kick off the season of giving in a positive and collaborative way, precisely what we need right now.
Seriously, after the turmoil of these last few months, wouldn’t it feel fantastic to take a day to give to others? As the song by Burt Bacharach goes, “What the world needs now, is love, sweet love.” And it seems to me that we sure could use a day to come together for a unified cause.
You can mobilize your family, your community, your company, or just yourself – and find a way to give back or purchase a gift that gives back. This year, QVC is collaborating with Peace Love World, a budding, women-led enterprise spreading peace, love and happiness around the world, as well as Nest, a global nonprofit dedicated to supporting women artisans who might not have the resources they need to flourish.
In the spirit of the day, QVC® is selling a t-shirt created especially for QVC that features the word “love” in 16 different languages.
The love shirt is already available online at QVC.com. You can purchase yours on #GivingTuesday or get one right now and wear it on #GivingTuesday! You can get one for a friend too. After all, a gift that gives back is the best type of gift!
And it is a pretty fantastic shirt, don’t you agree?
Plus, a whopping 60% of the purchase price of every shirt helps to support Nest.* QVC has been a proud participant in #GivingTuesday, supporting initiatives that support and benefit the success and wellness of women. QVC has always chosen to focus our community efforts on supporting the success and wellness of women around the world. They also require that the merchandise they offer is supplied by vendors who share a commitment to social responsibility, and Peace Love World is the perfect match.
However you plan to do it, let’s all show some love this #GivingTuesday. On November 29th, join the #GivingTuesday movement by sharing your time, a donation, a gift that gives back, or simply the power of your voice.
Even when we’re at odds, love is a language we can all understand. It really is what the world needs right now. And it’s the perfect way to get the holiday season off to a great start!
