This holiday season, QVC is a proud participant in Giving Tuesday, a national day for giving back. From December 3, 2013 through January 3, 2014, we encourage you to join in and Give Joy to nonprofit organizations that support the success and wellness of women through the power of relationships. When you make a donation to any of QVC’s Give Joy beneficiaries via QVC.com, QVC apps, or by phone, the donations will be matched by QVC up to $150,000.
Giving Tuesday is a national day of giving to kick off the giving season on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. In the same way that retail stores take part in Black Friday, we want the giving community to come together for Giving Tuesday.
New York’s 92nd Street Y was the catalyst for Giving Tuesday, bringing the expertise of 139 years of community management to the project and providing Giving Tuesday a home. The United Nations Foundation joined as partners, bringing their strategic and communications clout to the project. An amazing team of influencers then offered their ideas, contacts, and wisdom to help shape and improve the concept. A powerful list of corporations and non-profits agreed to be founding partners, helping spread the word and committing to their own Giving Tuesday initiatives. Since then, countless organizations, friends, and leaders have all added their support and talents to make Giving Tuesday a reality.
When you join QVC to Give Joy, you can feel proud that you’re supporting a national day of giving back to the community.
