This Giving Tuesday we have decided to give back to some of the nonprofits we work with throughout the year: United Way of Central Carolinas, Teach for America Charlotte-Piedmont Triad and the Carolina Thread Trail. Join us in giving back just by interacting with our posts on social media!
Here’s how it’ll work:
We’ll post both on Instagram and LinkedIn on Tuesday, Dec. 1. Comment on the post tagging one of the three nonprofits you would like to support, and Yellow Duck Marketing will donate $1 to the charity of choice, up to $3,000 total. One comment per person per platform.
Tell your friends, share our social media posts and we will keep this running until Dec. 15.
Learn more about each of the nonprofits:
United Way of Central Carolinas understands that many people across our five-county service region are living in a crisis situation every day. They’re committed to changing that by providing flexible funding to more than 100 nonprofits working year-round to meet the needs of our most vulnerable residents.
Teach For America recruits outstanding and diverse leaders to become TFA “corps members.” Corps members commit to teaching for two years in a low-income community, where they’re employed by local schools and confront both the challenges and joys of expanding opportunities for kids. This year, Teach for America celebrates 15 years in Charlotte and 5 years in the Piedmont Triad. Today, approximately 200 corps members work alongside more than 600 alumni across the Charlotte-Piedmont Triad communities creating opportunities for students.
The Carolina Thread Trail is a regional network of trails that connect 2.9 million people in 15 counties in North and South Carolina. The Thread Trail is an example of unprecedented regional collaboration that works to connect people and communities to nature and each other through more than 300 miles of trails and 170 miles of blueway open to the public. Led by Catawba Lands Conservancy, the Carolina Thread Trail strengthens the region by promoting economic development, education, better health and land conservation.
We also encourage you to make a separate donation to any of these wonderful nonprofits. Links to their online donation pages are below.
