While many brands are celebrating Giving Tuesday by donating to cancer, youth, or veterans' organizations, some are remembering the devastation caused by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria.
It’s been a few months since Houston was flooded by Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma landed in Florida, and Hurricane Maria slammed into Puerto Rico. While donations were strong right after the storms, the disasters have largely faded from the public eye despite cleanup that’s still going on.
President Donald Trump’s Giving Tuesday statement remembered the victims of this year’s hurricanes.
Some brands are also taking advantage of Giving Tuesday to encourage people to donate to disaster relief and those who lost their homes and livelihoods to the hurricanes.
