L.A. Clippers Foundation Announces #GIVINGTUESDAY Charitable Campaign2:09 AM
The L.A. Clippers Foundation announced today that the team will participate in the #GivingTuesday charitable movement on Nov. 29 for the third consecutive year.
#GivingTuesday has become an annual charitable celebration that unites more than 10,000 organizations worldwide under the common purpose of giving back.
Anyone interested in participating in the Clippers #GivingTuesday initiative can visit Clippers.com/GivingTuesday or call (213) 204-2900 for package and donation information.
#GivingTuesday is a movement to celebrate and provide incentives to give. It will culminate with a global day of giving on November 29, 2016. This effort harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners— charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. #GivingTuesday will inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they celebrate and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday will harness the power of social media to create a global moment that is dedicated to giving around the world.
