Recognizing our powerful ability to make meaningful change
By Kim Allman, Head of Corporate Responsibility and Government Affairs
Last year, Giving Tuesday drove unprecedented generosity in a truly unprecedented year. The events of the past year have further underscored the power of this global movement to unleash giving, and we are proud of the NortonLifeLock team for contributing in a meaningful way, driving donations and action for causes and communities worldwide.
Today is Giving Tuesday, a day of global generosity unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. In the spirit of giving back, Davor Cindric, Vice President of WW Strategic Alliances, and Gina Vespi, Marketing and Event Specialist of WW Strategic Alliances, continue to use their passion for cancer research and awareness to support American Cancer Society’s (ACS) fight for a world without cancer.

But don’t forget about Giving Tuesday.
Created in 2012, Giving Tuesday is a holiday that encourages people to give back to their communities by donating money to a charitable cause or volunteering for a good cause. The impact has been significant. In 2020, $2.47 billion was donated to U.S. nonprofits by 43.8 billion people on Giving Tuesday.

Giving Tuesday celebrates acts of generosity such as philanthropy, volunteerism, kindness and support efforts, and partnerships for good. And while such activities happen year-round, having this one day dedicated to the topic provides the opportunity to look back and be grateful for the progress made, while considering where to go next.
