Giving Tuesday 2014 (#GivingTuesday on Twitter) is Tuesday, December 2nd. BigOven will be donating all revenue earned that day to FeedingAmerica.org, which helps food banks in America feed the needy. Last year, with your help, we were able to fund over 14,000 meals for the needy.
What’s Giving Tuesday?
In 2013, Melinda and Bill Gates observed that we have one special day for giving thanks followed by two others for getting deals (“Black-Friday” and “Cyber Monday”), and that there was more than enough room for another focused on giving and charitable work.
BigOven wholeheartedly agrees, and is proud to participate in Giving Tuesday 2014 (#GivingTuesday), by donating all revenue made during the day to FeedingAmerica.org, America’s leading hunger-relief charity, which helps serve over 14 million children and 3 million seniors.
About Feeding America
While America is a land of plenty, for 1 in 6 people in the United States, hunger is a reality.
FeedingAmerica partners with local food banks, helping to secure food from national organizations, communicate best practices across locations, inspiring over 200 member organizations to best serve their local communities. They provide low-income individuals and families with the fuel to survive and even thrive. The network members supply food to more than 25 million Americans each year. Serving the United States, the 200+ member food banks support 63,000 agencies that address hunger in all of its forms.
My oldest son and I volunteer at our local food bank here in Seattle a few times each year, and I see directly some of the great work that they do. It takes tremendous logistical coordination to organize and source food, break bulk, package it, distribute it, and distribute fresh and nutritious food to those in need.
CharityNavigator rates the BBB-accredited charity FeedingAmerica 64/70 (91%) in terms of efficiency and effectiveness; it’s the leading hunger-relief organization in the United States. Join us by making a contribution today!
Giving is an opportunity to help create the better world we all want.
We humbly thank all our cooks, partners and employees around the world, and wish you the very best holiday season!
