"GIVING BACK" Trend or Tradition?

"GIVING BACK" Trend or Tradition?

 

Is "giving back" a trend or a tradition?

For decades, millions of people have donated to causes and campaigns for good in the world.  They do it quietly, with passion and compassion, each and every day.

Social media has enhanced the ability of fundraisers and good causes to reach out and touch the hearts of many more.  Sites like CrowdRise, have made it fun to get involved; run for a cause, champion a mission for good.  Facebook and Twitter and many more, have enabled all of us to connect and communicate about  causes we care most about.  Social media enables everyone who cares to engage interest with their like-minded friends and the world of "good deed doers' grows.   

Philanthropic branding has excelled in making it even easier.  When you focus your purchasing power and buy products from those companies that give back, you are making a difference too!

As of this posting, Bidding For Good.com has helped to raise over $203,000,000.00 for causes and non-profits!  

Why do Charity Auctions work?  Everyone wins!

The skeptic would probably say that those who bid on Charity Auctions are "just shopping for a steal of a deal".  That may be true. Each day, thousands of savvy bidders win really awesome items for a smidgen of real marketplace value.  

The optimist and fundraiser would probably say Bravo and Thank YOU!

Why?  It matters not why you participate in fundraising efforts for great causes.  It only matter that you did.

ART4GOOD hosts on-line auctions, continuously, throughout the year.  We envisage and embrace our community of loyal activists, and bidders differently than "the skeptic".  When you bid to win a treasure, every time you see it or enjoy it, you also know that you have been a part of an overall mission to support the greatest charities on the planet.

With passion and compassion, with a mission to "inspire change with every brush stroke", ART 4 GOOD volunteers work, tirelessly, without any compensation.

Thank YOU for all that YOU do to help and to inspire others!
