It’s November which means it’s almost time for Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Giving Tuesday! While all are about kicking off the holidays, there is a difference. During Black Friday and Cyber Monday, stores give steep discounts to customers who are shopping for the holidays, whereas Giving Tuesday came about when two organizations decided to dedicate a day to giving back to help remind everyone what this season is truly about.
Six years later, many organizations opt out of Black Friday and choose to participate in Giving Tuesday instead. We’re proud to be part of this group as we prepare for our annual Giving & Thanks campaign! Last year we had one day of giving and were able to donate hundreds of dollars to several charitable organizations. This year we hope to grow the tradition of giving by extending it to A Week of Giving & Thanks starting November 20, 2018 through November 27, 2018.
This season, we partnered with Martha’s Village and Kitchen during our Week of Giving & Thanks to inspire real change in the Coachella Valley community. We’re donating $500 to Martha’s Village and our goal is to double it by giving families the chance to vacation for good! When you book a two-night stay (or more!) with us during A Week of Giving & Thanks, you’ll save $50 off your reservation and we will donate an additional $50 to Martha’s Village.
We chose to partner with Martha’s Village and Kitchen because they provide a safe and welcoming environment for impoverished and homeless families, children and individuals. Since 1990, Martha’s Village has provided housing, education and support services in the Coachella Valley and Riverside County that help empower these individuals to transform their lives with dignity. The resources and partnerships have effectively sustained the organization to help individuals find the underlying causes of homelessness and help each client break the cycle. We are happy to partner with such an impactful organization on this year’s Week of Giving and Thanks!
