Blinkbuggy #GiveAMemory Charity Campaign for #GivingTuesday

In our last post, we spoke about giving back and specifically, giving back on December 2nd otherwise known as #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.

The goal of #GivingTuesday is to take a break from holiday shopping and raise awareness and funds for those in need. In support of #GivingTuesday, Blinkbuggy is thrilled to be partnering with Baby Buggy®, a non-profit founded by Jessica Seinfeld dedicated to providing families in need with essential equipment, products, clothing, and services, for our #GiveAMemory campaign.

WHAT IS #GIVEAMEMORY AND HOW CAN YOU HELP?

The #GiveAMemory campaign is simple. On December 2nd, for every Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram post you make with the hashtag #GiveAMemory, Blinkbuggy will donate $1 to Baby Buggy®. All you have to do is post one of your favorite memories to your own social media channels with the hashtag #GiveAMemory (and also include @blinkbuggy, @LoveRecycled and #GivingTuesday).

As part of our commitment to this great cause and great organization, we have pledged a minimum donation of $5,000. With one quick and easy action, you can help us double that to $10,000!

As we here at Blinkbuggy reflect on this past year, we have so many things for which to be thankful. We are thankful that we get to work everyday on a product and for a company of which we are proud and passionate. We are thankful for our customers for helping us make Blinkbuggy more than just a dream. Most of all, we are forever thankful for our children and families and their love and support.

With all of these things to be thankful for, we want to give back to those who may not have as much.

Please take a moment on December 2nd, #GivingTuesday, to #GiveAMemory and help us, as a community, help other families in need. To help you get started, below are some sample posts you might consider.

We thank you and wish you Happy Memories!

Examples for #GiveAMemory:

Twitter: I’m sharing a memory, my wedding day, 8-31-2008 #GiveAMemory #GivingTuesday to support @LoveRecycled via @Blinkbuggy. Share yours!

Tis the season… so give!

Tis the season…almost.  As we enter the traditional gluttony of the holidays, we’ve been giving a lot of thought to what we want to get from our friends and family. Actually, the kids have been having this conversation for months already but now mainstream media has finally caught up. Shopping reminders are rolling in like the tides and “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” are raising their flags, preparing for the consumer wars soon to rage…

(My apologies. I don’t mean to preach. It’s Frozen. How many Elsa dresses does one girl need!!)

Anyway, as we enter this year’s holiday season, we also want to give thought to what we can give back. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have what we have and we know that there are many others who are not so lucky. With that in mind, this year, in addition to “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday”, we urge you to keep December 2nd in mind.

December 2nd is #GivingTuesday (http://www.givingtuesday.org/), a day dedicated to giving back.

Seems the least we can do in this, the season of excess (I’m looking at you, 3rd piece of pecan pie! Why must you be so delicious!), is to give “giving” it’s own day. But let’s use it as just a reminder to start giving back more often rather than as a target in and of itself.  Even a little goes a long way to those who need it.

Below is an interesting, thought-provoking TED talk by Dan Pallotta on how we think about giving, specifically when it comes to non-profits. If you have 20 minutes to spare, it’s worth a listen.

Enjoy the holiday preparations. Be good to each other and don’t forget to give. Every little bit helps.

Happy memories!
