YES! Athletics Celebrates GivingTuesday with a Buy One, Give One campaign during the month of December 2020, joining millions around the world participating in the global generosity movement
Philadelphia PA, December 1, 2020 – Beginning this GivingTuesday and continuing for the month of December, YES! Athletics will inspire generosity by giving one pair of wrestling shoes for every pair sold to Beat the Streets Philadelphia.
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. GivingTuesday will kick off the generosity season this year by inspiring people to give back on December 1, 2020, and throughout the year.
YES! Athletics is excited to partner with Beat the Streets Philadelphia this holiday season to provide the necessary wrestling gear for girls participating in the program. Yes! Athletics hopes to give 50 pairs of wrestling shoes during the December campaign. To support this campaign, go to www.yesathleticsusa.com and use code GIVING. Shoes will be delivered to Beat the Streets Philadelphia by January 15th.
Deb North, Founder of Yes! Athletics shared her excitement for the program, “This is exactly the type of organization I was looking to support. I am excited to be able to support BTS Philly and their programs. If a pair of shoes can prompt a girl to start in this sport, it could change the trajectory of her life considerably.”
Ben Reiter, Senior Director of Development at BTS Philly shares in Deb’s enthusiasm. “ I am excited to form this partnership and look forward to a long relationship with Yes! Athletics. We truly appreciate the generosity and passion that this company shows for the sport of wrestling.”
GivingTuesday was launched in 2012 as a simple idea: to create a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
People demonstrate generosity in many ways on GivingTuesday. Whether it’s helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving to causes we care about, every act of generosity counts. GivingTuesday has raised billions of dollars for critical causes around the world and gets 21 billion impressions on social media from people and organizations speaking up for the causes that matter to them and encouraging others to get involved in their communities.
"GivingTuesday inspires people all around the world to embrace their power to drive progress around the causes they care about, not just on one day but throughout the year." said Asha Curran, GivingTuesday’s CEO, and co-founder. "With country and community leaders, millions of organizations, and countless givers of all kinds, GivingTuesday is creating a shared space where we can see the radical implications of a more generous world."
