Since its inception in 2012, Giving Tuesday has been celebrated across the globe as a day to give back: whether it be through donations, fundraising, volunteering your time and expertise, or simply by calling others to support a particular cause or initiative.
The evidence is overwhelming: climate change is an imminent threat, our food systems are increasingly stressed, and our lands, waters, and species are threatened like never before. If we don’t act now, the viability of our planet and our quality of life – to say nothing of the health of our economy – face an existential threat.
1% for the Planet are committed to supporting their nonprofit partners essential work in our six core focus areas: climate, food, land, pollution, water, and wildlife.
ProZ.com is pleased to host the Giving Tuesday Virtual Event to raise funds for 1% for the Planet. 1% for the Planet is a global organization that connects dollars and doers to accelerate smart environmental giving. We recognize that the current level of environmental giving - only 3% of total philanthropy - is not enough to solve the most pressing issues facing our planet.
This #GivingTuesday, help us kick off the 2017 season of giving by taking responsibility and giving back to the planet!
