Listen Up Español has joined #GivingTuesday, a first of its kind initiative that will harness the collective power of a unique blend of collaborators.
Listen Up Español will join forces with charities, families, businesses, and individuals to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. #GivingTuesday inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities and Listen Up Español is on board. “Our core value of “Going Beyond Ourselves” aligns with the purpose of #GivingTuesday which provided an opportunity for both of our U.S. and Mexico employees to participate.” said Tony Ricciardi, President of Listen Up Español.
Listen Up Español, the leading Spanish language call center and online marketer has over 800 native-speaking call agents. The company provides teleservices and online services to reach the U.S. Hispanic market with optimum results.
Locally, Listen Up Español partnered with the Preble Street Soup kitchen. The mission of Preble Street is to provide accessible barrier-free services to empower people experiencing problems with homelessness, housing, hunger, and poverty and to advocate solutions to those problems. Everyday more than 1,100 meals are served to homeless and low-income adults, children, and families. In Mexico, employees have set up a donate a toy table and will be giving to a local charity in Hermosillo, MX.
Seeing an opportunity to channel the generous spirit of the holiday season, thought leaders in philanthropy, social media, and grassroots organizing joined together to explore what is working in modern philanthropy and how to expand these innovations throughout the philanthropic sector. By bringing together a group of founding partners-including United Nations Foundation, DonorsChoose.org, Mashable, Blackbaud, charity:water, GlobalGiving, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), Kiva, Darden Restaurant Group, Groupon, Unilever, and Venture Three Capital- nationwide discussions occur to make #GivingTuesday a success. Now each week, new organizations join the movement and are providing creative ways people can embrace #GivingTuesday and Listen Up Español is no different.
The second annual #GivingTuesday will take place on December 3, 2013. It inspires personal philanthropy and encourages bigger, better, and smarter charitable giving across multiple media platforms during the Holiday Season.
