Celebrated on the Tuesday following the U.S.'s Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. This focused global day of giving began in 2012 and we hope each of you has a plan to celebrate and support an organization that is important to you.
This year, gather here has decided to give 25% of Tuesday's sales to the Flint Water Fund. It has been over a year since the world learned of the crisis in Flint but the damage had been going on for long before that news broke. After much discussion, the gather here team decided that while there are many organizations that could use our help right now, we wanted to push Flint's water crisis back into the spotlight. This crisis is fixable and we cannot let another year pass before all the residents of Flint have access to clean water.
Thank you for helping us be the best citizens that we can be. Your continued support means that as a community we can make real change in this messy world that we call home.
