#GivingTuesday is a global day when the world comes together to give.
Today is Giving Tuesday, a global day of charitable giving. The event was created back in 2012 as a response to consumerism. Celebrated on the Tuesday following the U.S. Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday encourages people and organizations around the world to do good and give back. Since its inception, the idea has grown into a global movement that inspires people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity. The Finnish Fundraising Association (VaLa) now brings the movement to Finland for the second time in a row.
This year, Serres and its sister company Innokas Medical join the movement and support families whose kids are battling critical illnesses, through Ronald McDonald House Charities in Helsinki.
Every year, supporters like us help upkeep the House, enabling more than 400 families stay together when they need it most.
The Ronald McDonald House in Helsinki provides a place to stay for families with hospitalized children who receive treatment at the New Children's Hospital.
Our Family Room Sponsorship helps offset the cost of operating the House, offering families a homelike place to stay close by their hospitalized child at a low cost.
“We are delighted to support this program that concretely and directly improves the health and well-being of the families, and enable them to focus on their child's health," says Mari Makkonen, Marketing Manager at Serres.
As a global movement, #GivingTuesday unites people around the world by sharing capacity to care for and empower one another.
