West Palm Beach, November 28, 2016 – Shuzz has 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.
Shuzz joined this movement to bring awareness and raise funds in order to provide new shoes to children in need around the world. Our volunteer team will travel throughout the year to impoverished communities all over the world, bringing new shoes to children to protect them from disease and injury. Small businesses, Corporations, and Individuals have the opportunity to make a donation and become an annual Shuzz Ambassador.

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 fth year of #GivingTuesday, we are encouraged by the early response from partners eager to continue making an impact in this global conversation.”
