Every single person has the power to do good + we can do more good together!
To help multiply the good in the world, we’re teaming up with Zappos (and some of our other favorite partners!) and inviting you to celebrate your ability to make a difference this holiday season by giving back to the nonprofit organizations that make your community a kinder, braver place.
The Challenge: Between November 13th (World Kindness Day!) and December 21st, do an act of good by volunteering or donating to a nonprofit in your community. For every act of good you pledge – and tell us about it through the form below! – we’ll match it by performing an act of good for one of our amazing nonprofit partners.
Remembering that you have the capacity to make a difference feels pretty amazing, but – as an extra incentive – we’ll choose one participant (and their guest) to join us in Las Vegas to do good with Team BTWF at a day of service and to check out Lady Gaga’s new show!
- Pick a Nonprofit + How You’ll Help: Choose an organization that’s doing good and decide how you can help them – give your time, give your money, or give your gently used items. Everyone has the power to do something! Here are some tips to get you started.
- Take the Pledge: Use the form below to tell us which organization you plan to support and how you’ll do it. Want to do more than one good deed? Just fill out the same form for each act of good you pledge to perform – and, remember, we’ll match every single one you tell us about (and every pledge enters you for the drawing for the trip to Las Vegas)!
- Share About It: Tell us how it goes – and invite others to join you! – by sharing on social media. Make sure to include the hashtag #MultiplyYourGood and tag @btwfoundation on Twitter and Instagram.
