After the highly anticipated, consumeristic events of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, at HeartPress PR we are ready for a celebration that begins with #GivingTuesday. This is not to say that we didn’t participate in a sale or two ourselves but now, and especially on this international day of giving, we’re ready to give back and kickstart the holiday season by doing good.
Stay tuned over the next month for our #SocialGood series of gift guides and be inspired by companies who are going beyond tradition to make an impact. From the buy-one-give-one model, to donating a monetary portion from each product that is sold. After all, the beauty and magic of the holiday season begins with giving back. Without further ado here is the first round up of gifts dedicated to the hostess. Happy #GivingTuesday!
