We have a holiday dedicated to giving thanks.
We have 2 days following that are earmarked for shopping “deals of the year”.
So, why not put a day after to kick-start giving back?
Giving Tuesday started in 2012 as a movement supporting charity, philanthropy, and encourage giving in any form – time, resources, talents, etc. It is the first Tuesday following Thanksgiving in which awareness is brought to a simple act of kindness.
This year for Giving Tuesday, we decided to partner with one of Northwest Arkansas’ local non-profit organizations – Havenwood. This organization is dedicated specifically to helping single parent families in need. Families that are struggling with domestic abuse or homelessness – families that are need of transitioning out of a bad situation and into a positive one.
So what can you do as a patron?
There’s always the donations basket next to the tip jar.
Or asking to tack on additional funds to the total bill.
Both are nice and can surely help out a little. But not everyone that comes through our doors can spare even the extra change.
Here’s what you CAN do:
Enjoy dinner at Uncle Maddio’s with your family.
Suggest the office crew have Uncle Maddio’s during lunch.
Pick-up a salad or even a cookie just because.
That’s all you have to do. A portion of ALL of our sales during Giving Tuesday will go directly to Havenwood.
We are proud to be involved in our community and participate in such a worthy event.
Did you catch Uncle Maddio’s on local TV affiliate KNWA?
KNWA and Fox News Edge met up Havenwood Director of Development Robin Dorf to discuss the impact of Giving Tuesday and the partnership of non-profits and businesses like Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint.
