HIGH POINT – The American Home Furnishings Hall of Fame Foundation is joining GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that will take place Nov. 30, 2021.
“Joining the global generosity of GivingTuesday supports our goal in coming together as an industry as we build a home for home furnishings,” said Caroline Hipple, president of the Hall of Fame board of directors and president of Norwalk Furniture.
Created in 2012, GivingTuesday has a simple purpose: to be a day that encourages people to take part by giving, collaborating and celebrating generosity.
“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 CEO and co-founder.
In addition to raising funds, the Foundation hopes to raise awareness about the home furnishings industry and increase social media engagement.
“Our GivingTuesday theme: ‘Building a Home for Our Industry’ emphasizes our collaborative spirit and how much we can do together if each of us does our part. We are a global industry that can come together on this day of global giving,” Hipple added. “We encourage our industry to get involved and play a role in ensuring that our home is well funded and well represents our industry.”
