Stand Together and Deion Sanders Surprise Shoppers who “Make It Count” with Holiday Donations at Dallas Mall

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 25 novembre 2018

Stand Together and NFL Hall of Famer and Network Analyst Deion Sanders this morning launched Stand Together’s Make It Count initiative, asking shoppers to donate the difference of their Black Friday savings to nonprofits that are transforming lives and helping people in Dallas and across the country out of poverty. Stand Together, a social change organization committed to breaking the cycle of poverty, kicked off the national campaign at Stonebriar Centre in Frisco, where Sanders surprised shoppers who donated on the spot. Through Giving Tuesday on Nov. 27, Stand Together will match all donations made through the campaign platform standtogetheragainstpoverty.org. In 2017, Dallas ranked among the top five most generous cities in the nation and local organizations have been working to leverage Giving Tuesday to become the top city.“This holiday season, I ask people to consider the impact their shopping savings could have on the 39 million people who are living in poverty across America,” Sanders said. “I am partnering with Stand Together again for the Make It Count campaign, which takes the guesswork out of where to go to make a difference in communities across the country. They have a network of organizations who have made it their mission to fight poverty in the most effective ways.” The campaign spotlights more than 50 organizations across the country that Stand Together has recognized for demonstrating their ability to help solve the nation’s toughest problems and help people improve their lives.In the network is Cafe Momentum, a Dallas-based, restaurant and culinary training facility transforming the lives of young people who have spent time in juvenile facilities. Chad Houser, founder and CEO of Café Momentum, leads an operation to provide the kids a positive environment, paid internship that involves intensive culinary, job and life-skill training, as well as continued mentorship and support.Americans are expected to spend more than $7 billion this Black Friday. On Cyber Monday, Stand Together will call on online shoppers to also donate a portion of their purchase savings. In 2017, online transactions in the U.S. reached a record $6.59 billion on Cyber Monday. That same year, on Giving Tuesday, initiatives raised more than $274 million from more than 2.5 million contributions. Stand Together hopes to build on these successes as the Make It Count campaign continues through Giving Tuesday.
