The ‘igniting the 21st Century Philanthropist’ red carpet event will take place on #GivingTuesday, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, and will be attended by iDonor’s non-profit partners, The Tiger Woods Foundation, The Trevor Project, Alzheimer’s Association, Two Wings and Peace4Kids, as well as the Mayor of West Hollywood, Abbe Land, who will be presenting iDonor with a City Proclamation. The evening will be a celebration of philanthropy and giving through version 1 of the iDonor mobile widget, hosted by French Tuesday Productions who will be adding their twist around socializing a celebration of Philanthropy and igniting the 21st Century Philanthropist. “We are excited to be a part of this inaugural celebration and want party guests making donations along with capturing great photos and sharing them with their network of friends!” said Gilles Amsallem, Co-Founder of French Tuesday. “During the evening we will be encouraging everyone to take plenty of pictures and upload their “unselfie” with #Unselfie and #iDonor, as part of the #GivingTuesday initiative to have millennials and celebrities capture “selfie” photos and talk about what they care about most.” Ken Brenner, Founder of Interactive Donor Corp. added “We will be celebrating #GivingTuesday and in order to harness the power of social media to support a national movement around the holidays by igniting the 21st Century Philanthropist. The movement is similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are synonymous with holiday shopping. iDonor is a global next generation solution that offers a more engaging and rewarding donation experience.” iDonor joined #GivingTuesday in a partnership to ignite the next generation of donors with the iDonor donation widget which is the next generation of the current ‘Donate Now’ button.
