It’s Giving Tuesday, and here at Clarity we take this day seriously by preparing for it weeks in advance. This year we are excited to announce our 2021 Holiday Donation Recipient is Girls on the Run!
How did we select this organization?
Each year, in lieu of traditional holiday gifts and trinkets for our clients, we commit to giving a donation to a charity or non-profit organization that is selected by our Team. At Clarity, we value everyone’s ideas and contributions, so we issue an open call to source suggestions from the entire Team. Around Thanksgiving in anticipation of Giving Tuesday, willing contributors “pitch” an organization to the entire company and present ーthis year over Zoom!ー what it’s about and why it should be considered by Clarity for our annual holiday season donation. We then hold a vote where each Team member can select their choice and the organization with the most votes becomes the recipient of a Giving Tuesday donation on behalf of our network and clients.
Shout out to Serena and Jennie for presenting this inspiring organization! Keep reading to learn more about the organization:
About Girls on the Run:
Girls on the Run® is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.
Girls on the Run reaches girls at a critical stage, strengthening their confidence at a time when society begins to tell them they can’t. Underscoring the important connection between physical and emotional health, our program addresses the whole girl when she needs it the most.
Meeting in small teams or connecting virtually, trained volunteer coaches inspire girls to build confidence and other important life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and physical activity.
Girls on the Run may have received the most votes from our Team, but we’d be remiss not to mention some of the other wonderful organizations that were runners up because they are all doing incredible work that should be celebrated today and every day. Here they are:
ST JUDE’s CHILDREN’s RESEARCH HOSPITAL
BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS of NYC
**2021 marks our 5th year of this tradition which originated as an action in alignment with our core values**:
