A Thunderous Thanksgiving (and beyond!)
With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, we’re highlighting a few campaigns that celebrate the spirit of the holiday, plus a few to help you give back and get involved in your community after Thanksgiving is over.
Each year since 2004, the Surgeon General has declared Thanksgiving to be National Family Health History Day. While you’re gathered with your relatives this year, have a discussion about he health problems that run in the family, and create a plan to stay aware and keep your health in check. Learning about your family health history could save your life.
Between1.6 and 2.8 million youth run away in a year. This Thanksgiving, the National Runaway Safeline is encouraging people nationwide to speak up for youth in crisis and promote the resources available to young people that need help.
When Thanksgiving comes to a close, gear up for Cyber Monday and make a socially conscious choice when you’re shopping online. Zady is calling for brands to expose every level of their supply chain in an effort to provide consumers with an unprecedented element of trust and confidence in their clothing. Be part of a petition to bring a “sourced in” tag to all clothing so consumers can make more informed choices about their apparel.
No Kid Hungry is devoted to making sure that every child gets the healthy food they need to succeed. $1 can connect a hungry kid with up to 10 meals. This Giving Tuesday (December 2, just after Thanksgiving), consider supporting this initiative to end child hunger.
We all deserve to know where our clothing comes from.
Zady is leading the charge to bring supply chain transparency to the industry.
The company is promoting a petition to make it happen.
“This petition is to create a new standard that would require apparel brands to label all goods sold in the U.S. with Sourced In, disclosing the country of origins of the entire supply chain. In this way if a product is labeled Sourced in the U.S., the American consumer can feel confident that a product is in fact entirely made domestically.”
