Paint the Town Green for Earth Day 2015

Earth Day Giving Day

Happy Earth Day 2015!

This year marks the 45th anniversary of Earth Day. The grassroots movement that started at schools across the US has evolved into a global event celebrated in over 192 countries. All across the world, people of all ages and backgrounds unite to declare that our planet should be cherished and protected.

But Earth Day is not simply a celebration, it is also a call to action.

We are called on to change our habits, and to make personal choices with a focus on positive environmental impact: recycling, limiting car pollution and efficiently using the resources around us. We are also encouraged to raise our voices, and to bring about policy change on worldwide issues such as clean energy and climate change.

YouGiveGoods values taking care of the earth as much as taking care of each other.

We are pleased to mark the importance of Earth Day by including it as part of our Giving Days. Today, on April 22, YouGiveGoods will donate an additional 5% cash gift to charity on donations of $50 or more made to an online drive hosted with us! Explore available drives to see the causes you can contribute tangible goods to.

As a bonus, did you realize that YouGiveGoods is a green drive solution? Traditionally, collection box drives can yield expired, damaged or unusable goods which the charity then has to use its limited resources to dispose of properly. Goods raised with us are all brand-new and needed by the charity.

Traditional drives can rack up transportation costs too. Individual supporters must drive to and from stores and collection sites creating pollution and spending energy and gas. YouGiveGoods reduces the environmental impact by (typically) delivering all items in one shipment.

Are you ready to take action in support of Earth Day?

Check out A Billion Acts of Green and see how you can take part in this global initiative. Long after Earth Day has passed, we promise to honor our commitment of keeping the YouGiveGoods platform green as ever! Remember: all year long, you can give and raise green for charity.
