Pay it Forward and #GivingTuesday
Local giving and volunteerism is woven into the fabric of Courtland’s culture. We put this into action today when all of our employees receive $100 extra in their paycheck to Pay It Forward in their community. Our founder, Steven Trudell, read an article several years ago about a family that used this time of year to perform random acts of kindness for people in their community and it struck a chord.
“It helps me to put everything into perspective” says Steve. This perfectly coincides with #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving, created four years ago by 92nd Street Y. The website explains “#GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges.”
We are excited to take to social media tomorrow and share all the good our employees will be doing with their Pay It Forward Funds! Please follow us on Twitter @CourtlandCares, Facebook and LinkedIn to hear all about it. It is our hope to inspire others to share their time, talents, and generosity with those in their community!
