Check out our *two* new guests below!

 

This Thursday, November 15 at 1 pm ET, mark your calendars for our monthly #C4Gchat. We’ll be talking corporate holiday giving…with a twist. By giving good this holiday season, companies are tapping into the hearts of their employees and consumers. Learn about why companies choose to do good, get the skinny on how these giving programs work, and discover examples of successful campaigns.

 

Giving Good for the Holidays

#C4Gchat | Hosted by @Companies4Good

Thursday, November 15 at 1pm

 

We’re pleased to share our partners CrowdRise, SnagFilms, and the esteemed Chrysler will be our featured participants in this online-only event.

Last December, Mozilla Firefox offered a $25K prize donation to the charity that raised the most money on CrowdRise.  Nearly a hundred charities competed for the grand prize as well as some celebs and, after just a few weeks, over $680,000 was raised for charity. And, they're going at it again this year. This kind of campaign is way better than a voting campaign because, in a voting campaign, the charities that don't win get nothing. Join the #C4Gchat to learn more! They'll be tweeting via @crowdrise.

The ‘Secret Santa for Good’ Sweepstakes provided gift cards for charity to winning participants. You can learn more during the event. The SnagFilms team will be joining us @FilmanthropySF.

The auto giant proves they care about their employees (see: giving them election day off) and their community by providing Thanksgiving meals to those in need. Get the scoop on Thursday via @Chrysler.

 

 

Build-A-Bear.gifWe're fortunate enough to have Build-A-Bear Workshops join us too! They'll be talking about their work with Toys for Tots. Follow them via @buildabear.
