The Story

Giving Tuesday which first appeared in the United States in 2012, is celebrated on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, as a response to the Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday. Giving Tuesday allows individuals, organizations and communities around the world to meet each other and share a common purpose:

To celebrate and encourage giving in all its forms (whether money, voice, goods, time).

Over the years, this day has spread to over 100 countries and has become a movement that supports giving and philanthropy.

On November 27, 2018, Schneider Electric will mobilize all its employees around the world to respond to this call from the heart!
