Blind LGBT Pride International Celebrates #GivingTuesday and Pledges to Participate In The Continuum Of Giving

Miami Lakes, Florida [November 1, 2018– This #GivingTuesday, Blind LGBT Pride International will celebrate giving with thousands of individuals and organizations throughout the country and around the world.

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this year’s #GivingTuesday will take place on November 27th and will kick off the giving season by inspiring people to collaborate and give back.

BPI is excited about being a part of this worldwide movement to encourage giving and celebrate generosity. Harnessing the collective power of charities, businesses, and individuals. The goal of this initiative is to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in giving all year round - especially during the holidays.

“We are incredibly inspired by the way the #GivingTuesday community has embraced this concept for a worldwide movement,” said Gabriel Lopez-Kafati, President of Blind LGBT Pride International. “As we prepare for November 27, we’re energized and encouraged by the community’s generosity. The levels of creativity, effort and the quality of the new ideas people have contributed and shared are phenomenal.”

Founded in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y – a community and cultural center in New York City − #GivingTuesday inspired millions of people to give back and support the causes they believe in. Over $300 million was raised online to benefit a tremendously broad range of organizations, and much more was given in volunteer hours, donations of food and clothing, and acts of kindness.
