“What we spend, we lose. What we keep will be left for others. What we give away will be ours forever,” stated David McGee, pastor, author, musician.
These are the words that come to mind as we enter the holiday season. It was in this spirit that not long ago we asked you to share your story of #GivingTuesday: a day that celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations. In celebration of #GivingTuesday, Campbell & Company requested submissions from people, asking to share how they contributed on the first official day of giving in the history of the United States.
Campbell & Company pledged to donate 25 dollars to three charities representing three diverse missions.
We were delighted to hear so many caring stories come our way from all corners of the nation. Your stories varied from supporting animal life in Rwanda and helping local Salvation Army efforts to backing social causes and promoting philanthropy by hosting events.
Whether it was a donation to the Mountain Gorilla Veterinary Project made by Sally Zelonis, Barbara Linek’s time dedicated to plan a retreat for a group of Christians, or gift cards from Six Degrees so all of Susan McLaughlin’s family members could donate to their charity of choice, we applaud and thank you for your time and generosity.
Campbell & Company donated $25 to each of the following organizations:
