This past Friday, 10.4 billion dollars was spent during the Black Friday holiday shopping day. The holiday shopping season is a joyous occasion for many, a pivotal point for the economy, and most importantly the holiday shopping season is a make-or-break for many Black owned businesses.
In an effort to aid Black owned businesses through the creation of resources and initiatives, we’re participating in #GivingTuesday. Giving Tuesday is a day dedicated to giving-back. Here at the US Black Chambers, Inc. we’re honoring Giving Tuesday by “giving-Black.”
Our goal is to raise funds to support one of our existing programs: Black Male Entrepreneur Institute (BME). BME provides both seasoned and novice millennial black male entrepreneurs with a 16 week dynamic and personalized business developmental experience. Your contribution will directly impact young black male entrepreneurs in our BME Institute. Make the choice to make an impactful donation to support the USBC’s Black Male Entrepreneur Institute.
Let Us Know We Have Your Support. Send us a tweet or post on our Facebook page your commitment to giving-Black. Connect with us this Tuesday on Facebookand Twitter using the hashtag #GivingTuesday.
