Giving Tuesday is a day to spread awareness of giving back, whether that's donating, volunteering, helping out a friend, whatever giving back means to you. For us, this day represents one of our core values of giving back to our community. Scroll to learn more about Giving Tuesday, how we're giving back, and a small note from our founders.
1 Order = 1 Donation
In honor of this holiday, we are donating an Impactful Gift for every order! We recently launched our Impactful Gifts on our website in partnership with the International Committee, a long-term partner of ours. Each gift is a donation to a refugee or refugee family in need. These donations can help provide access to healthcare, give school supplies, and even get out emergency food packs. The Impactful Gift that we are offering as a matched donation today is A Safe Birth.
The Safe Birth gift allows refugees to give birth safely and healthily. In the midst of war or disaster, mothers still give birth, despite the chaos around them. In places like Syria and South Sudan, where outbreaks of violence can cut off access to health care, childbirth can pose life-threatening risks. This donation makes sure that women living through emergency situations can deliver babies safely. Access to a skilled health worker, emergency transport to a hospital and medicine can make all the difference for a new mom and her baby.
About Giving Tuesday
"Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. It is now an independent nonprofit and global movement that inspired hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. Whether is is making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts, and everyone has something to give.
In an era of global crisis and disconnection, we need new rituals to connect us. As the world's largest giving movement, we believe we can go further, faster when we unleash generosity together. Giving Tuesday strives to build a world in which the catalysts power of generosity is at the heart of the society we build together, unlocking dignity, opportunity, and equity around the globe.
A Note From Our Co-Founders
Today is Giving Tuesday. It's a day that people and companies come together following the biggest shopping weekend of the year to give back and highlight causes that we all care about. Leigh and I founded Threads 4 Thought 14 years ago with a clear mission to create awesome, sustainably sourced clothing and to give back by investing in meaningful programs that will help facilitate long term outcomes. We are so proud to partner with the International Rescue Committee this holiday season to facilitate our Impactful Gift Shop, that gives you the change to give tangible, meaningful, symbolic gifts this holiday season.
This past January, my wife Leigh and I welcomed our second child Miles into the world. We were so fortunate to have incredible doctors, nurses, and all the care we needed to ensure a safe birth. Not everyone is so fortunate. That is why, for ever order you place today, we will donate an Impactful Gift of A Safe Birth in your name. I would encourage you to check out www.rescue.org to learn more about our partners in this project.
Thank you all for supporting Threads 4 Thought. We couldn't do any of this without you.
Leigh & Eric Fleet
