Today marks the 7th annual Giving Tuesday. After the excitement of shopping countless deals on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday we take a day to give back and provide for others in need. Giving Tuesday was created back in 2012 when two organizations, the 92ndStreet Y and the United Nations Foundation came together. Their idea to set aside a day that was all about the generosity of giving sparked a now world-wide effort to care for and empower others.
The holiday season is my favorite time of the year and this year I am profoundly excited to share the joy of giving with those around me. Here at Casandra Properties, we have been blessed in many ways. It has been said that it is better to give than to receive and I couldn’t agree more. There really is no greater feeling than giving to others. It is our goal not only to give today but to carry this tradition throughout the Holiday season. This is why we have decided to make a series of donations over the next few weeks to several organizations that have touched so many lives. We are firm believers in supporting our community and are looking forward to the opportunity of giving back to those around us.
To kick off the season of giving on Black Friday, my family and I were honored to present a check to the lucky winner of the South Shore Commons $2,500 shopping spree. South Shore Commons is the first Staten Island shopping center to take part in this type of promotion. You can read more about this exciting initiative here.
The next few weeks is a very exciting time for the Casandra Properties team. Stay tuned and follow us on Facebook live this Monday, December 3, from 8:00 AM – 12:00 PMas we cruise around in the mobile unit and give back to local non-profits.
