Interesting numbers. Imagine the difference we could make in our world if even 10% of us took that $136 per person and gave it away instead!
We wanted to give you an update on the Great Valentine's Day Give. This year, we decided to go back to our roots and the simplicity of when we first started. We had a BLAST these last few years with Chick fil A and are grateful for the incredible memories they helped to create. Because of them and all of you, hundreds of families were anonymously blessed over Valentine's Day.
We would love to have you join the movement this year and give anonymously on Valentine's Day. W...e encourage you to give and to give generously. This amount will be different for everyone, but give until it hurts. Find a person or a family who needs an extra boost this season and share your blessings with them.
Of course, we always encourage you to dress up and head to a fast food restaurant and give what you would have spent to families, but don't let that limit your giving. Let that just be the start.
We would love to hear your stories and see your pictures. Send them our way and we will share them on this page!
Many blessings this Valentine's Day!
We are currently compiling stories of those who have given to others or have been recipients from someone because of the Great Valentine's Day. Share your stories with us either in the comments below or via messaging. We can't wait to hear what you share!
Special thanks to all of the amazing people who sacrificed the usual Valentine's Day material things to give instead. Thanks to all of the folks who came out to @Chick-fil-A yesterday to support local charities here in Pittsburgh. And of course thanks to all of the great folks at Chick-fil-A who worked so hard to make this Great Valentine's Day Give our best ever thus far. We cannot wait to see what next year brings!
People are starting to come for dinner at the Chick-fil-A at South Hills. The lovely Kristen, their marketing manager, is taking orders, the cow is out, and they have the place beautifully decorated! Come on in even if you don't have a reservation. Donations will go toward the Washington City Mission!
A big thank you to Washington PA Chick-fil-A for going all-out to host The Give today! We had a packed house for lunch which was so cool because they are donating to Greater Washington County Food Bank and lots of people mean lots of donations. One of our favorite stories was about a couple who hadn't heard about the give and decided last minute to do this instead of their previous Valentine's Day plans! We also had a special 9 year old celebrate his birthday with us! An extra special thank you to Washington Square Flower Shop for donating beautiful flowers that were given to all ladies, young and old, who came for The Give today!
Washington PA Chick-fil-A is ready for you! Come on in to celebrate The Great Valentine's Day Give! We will be there with our kids at 12:30 today! Hope to see you there!
Today is the day! Let's get out there and show Pittsburgh and everyone else that Valentine's Day can be about showing love to others through giving and sacrifice. And everyone can do that from young to old, single, dating, married or widowed.
If you are going to one of the participating Chick-fil-A's today, remember to do two things:
1) Tell your cashier that you are there for the Great Valentine's Day Give. That is how they will know to give back on your behalf to their c...hosen charitable organization.
2) Upload your photos to Instagram and/or Facebook with the hashtag #GiveLovePGH
We are thrilled to announce another partnership this year with The Great Valentine's Day Give.
