Wyckoff, NJ ~ Friday, November 22, 2019 – This GivingTuesday, The Leonidas Foundation will inspire generosity by raising money to support charitable initiatives such as our Holiday Toy Drive and the L.E.O. Program.
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. GivingTuesday will kick off the generosity season this year by inspiring people to give back on December 3rd, and throughout the year.
The Leonidas Foundation is joining #GivingTuesday to capture the giving spirit of the holidays in an effort to help those in need. With the hustle bustle of the holiday season and end of the year approaching, #GivingTuesday is a means to amplify the Leonidas Foundation’s mission to honor Leo’s life by helping those in need through our humanitarian and educational outreach.
“We are excited at the opportunity to participate in GivingTuesday’s incredible initiative to spread charity and philanthropy,” said Teddy Vagias, Trustee of The Leonidas Foundation. “Working with other organizations who share our mission of giving of their time, energy, and resources to better the world is truly a privilege.”
GivingTuesday was launched in 2012 as a simple idea: to create a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
People demonstrate generosity in many ways on GivingTuesday. Whether it’s helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving to causes we care about, every act of generosity counts. GivingTuesday has raised billions of dollars for critical causes around the world and gets 14.2 billion impressions on social media from people and organizations speaking up for the causes that matter to them and encouraging others to get involved.
"GivingTuesday inspires people all around the world to embrace their power to drive progress around the causes they care about, not just on one day but throughout the year." said Asha Curran, GivingTuesday’s CEO, and co-founder. "With country and community leaders, millions of organizations, and countless givers of all kinds, GivingTuesday is creating a shared space where we can see the radical implications of a more generous world."
