Happy Giving Tuesday - $25,000 donated so far!
Update: the final tally was over $28,000! Thank you to the S&G Community for making this possible!
Happy Giving Tuesday
It's Giving Tuesday, or as we at Sheets & Giggles call it...Tuesday. We've been giving back since way before it was cool. We're the hipsters of philanthropy, apparently.
From Black Friday through Giving Tuesday, we're taking 20% off all bedding, PLUS giving 20% to any charity listed in the PayPal Giving Fund (which happens to be just about every major charity). This promotion ends today, so get something for yourself and help us give back.
While this is the last day of this particular sale, this isn't the last time we'll be giving back. Not by a long shot.
Giving back is our bed and butter
We do it year-round. Whether there's a national holiday mandating it, or whether a specific charity or cause needs some help, we're extremely proud to be in a position where we can do some good in the world.
For example, in 2020, we donated $40,000 to Colorado's COVID relief efforts. In 2019, we donated $17,000 to the World Wildlife Fund to rescue and treat koalas endangered in the Australian bush fires.
We couldn't do any of this without the support of the S&G Community. To wit, because you like our eucalyptus sheets (and other eucalyptus bedding products) so much, we're able to give a sheet.
Well, mostly money. But, also sheets.
Donation Totals (so far)
Last year, we ran the same promotion: 20% off and 20% to charity. By the end of the day on Giving Tuesday in 2020, we donated $12,500 to various charities.
A very respectable amount of money by any measurement. Right?
Well, hold on to your hats, folks.
As of this writing, we've donated over $25,000 to your favorite charities. That's $25,000 since Friday! Way to go, S&G Community!
Here are the top five charities you selected and the dollar amount we donated:
St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.....$8,182
Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.....$1,385
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.....$1,282
Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.....$1,237
Cancer Research Institute.....$1,166
Wow, y'all really hate cancer. For what it's worth, we also hate cancer. (See below)
The S&G Team (mainly those with hairy faces), decided to participate in No-Shave November this year to raise awareness for prostate cancer. (Incidentally, Prostate Cancer Foundation is the 7th most-selected charity, so clearly we're on the same page re: hating cancer.)
Take a look at these dramatic before and after pics. Watch our faces go from pilly polyester to soft and smooth eucalyptus lyocell. Wow, that is...that is a shameless plug.
RIP Mike's mustache. You'll be missed.
Jim lost 27 years with this one simple trick.
Colin went from friendly to not-so-friendly back to friendly again.
Jake even shaved his suit off. That's dedication.
Chris looks like a freshly-shaved horse.
Unfortunately, Carl opted out of No-Shave November...wait, no, no, he took part.
We said it before and we'll say it again and again. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to give back. And thank you for another successful giving season.
