Thanks To Yanks, is a non-political 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to support military members, veterans and their families, 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 28, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, 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.
By joining the #GivingTuesday movement, Thanks To Yanks is raising funds for those who have sacrificed so much for our country, our military and service members.
Thanks To Yanks president and founder, Michael Shain said, “We are excited to join such a progressive movement towards global philanthropy and hope to further our mission of supporting our veterans and military members.”
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 2016, the fifth year of #GivingTuesday, millions of people in 98 countries came together to give back and support the causes they believe in. Over $177 million was raised online to benefit a tremendously broad range of organizations, and much more was given in volunteer hours, donations of food and clothing, and acts of kindness.
