For seven years, #GivingTuesday has sought to harness generosity into a sustained movement that brings meaningful change to communities worldwide. Today, PN will have the opportunity to participate in driving this change forward on a global scale. As noted last week, we will continue to evolve our own Purpose in the year ahead with a steadfast commitment to diversity and inclusion. Which is why, during this incredible season of giving, we are offering everyone the chance to lend a helping hand to those in need. No matter how you decide to engage, whether it be through the donation of time, resources or talents, we do hope you choose to join us in support of #GivingTuesday.
For those looking for simple ways to get involved, please visit the Intranet or click the below “Take Action” button (brought to PN by our partners at Public Good), for the opportunity to support one of the following organizations:
- Action Against Hunger (AAH) – A PN London client, AAH leads the global fight against hunger. More children in conflict zones are dying from starvation than bullets and AAH works in war and disaster zones with children and families, even after the story is no longer in the headlines.
- Anti-Defamation League (ADL) – As an organization that Stands for Love and inclusivity, we are committed to combatting all forms of defamation in the U.S. and around the world. The ADL is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that stands up for those whose voices are not always heard. With a network of more than two dozen regional offices nationwide and an office in Jerusalem, ADL is on the ground, organizing and galvanizing grassroots support around the most pressing issues of the day.
- CARE – CARE have been PN’s nominated global NGO partner for the past two years. They are known everywhere for their unshakeable commitment to the dignity of people. They seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and all people live with dignity and security.
- The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids – A cause that is intrinsically linked to PN’s heritage and a former client, The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids is the leading advocacy organization working to reduce tobacco use and its deadly consequences in the U.S. and around the world.
