Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
On November 27, 2012, EverydayFamily.com participated in the inaugural #GivingTuesday, a nationwide movement harnessing the 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.
“During the Holidays, many people find themselves wanting to be a part of something bigger,” says Noah Anderson, owner and CEO of EverydayFamily.com. “Our ongoing Facebook ‘Like’ campaign is an easy way for our everyone to be a part of the cause. If we all get involved, work together to donate our time and efforts, we can give back and truly make a difference.”
#GivingTuesday has already inspired over 1,400 organizations and people in all 50 U.S. states and around the world to take collaborative action. Each aims to improve their local communities and give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support and help create a better world.
Through EverydayFamily.com’s Facebook “Like” campaign, up to $20,000 will be donated to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) during the holiday season. For each new Facebook “Like” it receives between now and December 31, 2012, EverydayFamily.com will donate $1 to LLS, to help fund the fight against pediatric cancer.

#GivingTuesday is a movement to celebrate and provide incentives to give. It will culminate with a national day of giving on November 27, 2012. This first-of-its-kind 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 national moment around the holidays that is dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are synonymous with holiday shopping.
