Armpocket donated 10% of online sales between November 11 and December 31, 2016 to benefit Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation.
Armpocket joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Occurring this year on November 29, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
Armpocket is proud to participate in #GivingTuesday and beyond, to help give back to our local community. We wanted to show our commitment to health and wellness as-well-as provide assistance to children who need it. “Our goal is to forge a lasting relationship with Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation and become a part of their commitment to bettering the lives of children and their families.” – Justin Lowe, Armpocket.
92Y − a cultural center in New York City that, since 1874, has been bringing people together around its core values of community service and giving back − conceptualized #GivingTuesday as a new way of linking individuals and causes to strengthen communities and encourage giving. In 2015, the fourth year of the movement, #GivingTuesday brought together over 45,000 partners in 71 countries and helped raise nearly $117 Million online in the US alone.
“We have been incredibly inspired by the generosity in time, efforts and ideas that have brought our concept for a worldwide movement into reality,” said Henry Timms, founder of #GivingTuesday and executive director of 92Y. “As we embark on our fifth year of #GivingTuesday, we are encouraged by the early response from partners eager to continue making an impact in this global conversation.”
