Make a difference for Opportunity International on #GivingTuesday by wearing jeans!

GIVE THE GIFT OF OPPORTUNITY ON #GIVINGTUESDAY

This #GivingTuesday, Opportunity International invites you, our trusted friend, to join us and fashion entrepreneur Megan Tamte’s Evereve to Give the Gift of Opportunity by bringing women’s empowerment and jeans…yes, jeans…together for a day.

What’s one of the most tried and true employee fundraisers of all time?  That’s right, Jeans Day.  On a typical jeans day fundraiser, employees pay $10 to a non-profit to be able to wear jeans to work.  This year, Opportunity International and Evereve are inviting companies everywhere to participate in Jeans for Opportunity on Giving Tuesday

By participating in this special day, your company will have the chance to get your employees engaged in a cause you care about, have fun, garner potential media and publicity and demonstrate corporate goodwill.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

WHY OPPORTUNITY?

Opportunity International is a global non-profit organization that helps people in developing nations break the cycle of poverty, transform their lives, strengthen their families and improve their communities. We provide loans, savings accounts, insurance and business training to approximately 5 million clients in 22 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe. Clients use our services to expand businesses, provide for their families, create jobs and build a safety net for the future. Opportunity International has provided more than 23 million loans valued at nearly $6.5 billion.  When you give to Opportunity International, your money fuels an entrepreneur and the local economy.  In fact, every $150 donated = 1 more entrepreneur empowered by our work.  Learn more at www.opportunity.org

WHY JEANS?

During the month of December, Evereve will be launching their Giving is Hot program whereby every purchase of a pair of jeans generates a $10 donation to Opportunity International. The Giving Tuesday Jeans for Opportunity is a way to get everyone involved in the spirit of giving while shining light on the eradication of global poverty.   Learn more about Evereve here evereve.com
