Yours & One Other Joins the Global #GivingTuesday Movement to Positively Impact the Lives of Youth and Veterans Through the Game of Golf
Inspiring Others to Make a Difference; One Opportunity at a Time.
[KISSIMMEE, FL (NOVEMBER 24, 2020)] — The charitable affiliate of the North Florida PGA, Yours & One Other, has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. On December 1st, Yours & One Other hopes to inspire generosity in the North Florida region and empower others to join us in our mission to positively impact the lives of our local Youth and Veterans by giving back through the game of golf.
Every year, on Giving Tuesday, millions of people across the globe show up, give back, and make a difference in their communities. The goal is to create a massive wave of selflessness that lasts well beyond this day, and touches the lives of those in need. Embracing Giving Tuesday’s belief that the catalytic power of generosity is at the heart of the society we build together, unlocking dignity, opportunity, and equity; Yours & One Other and Members of the North Florida PGA have committed considerable amounts of time and effort to address the challenges facing North Florida’s Youth and Veterans.
We believe in the lasting impact of this global movement and we are convinced that sharing our abilities with others is the most fulfilling way to use them. Giving Tuesday will allow us to share our core purpose and beliefs, and inspire the spirit of giving to grow the greatest game ever played. This movement is a perfect fit with the vision and core purpose for which Yours & One Other was built — that using the simple principle of “repairing your ball mark and one other”, we can empower others to change the lives of Youth and Veterans in the communities they live and work.
GT Founder, Henry Timms, conceptualized a simple, yet inspiring idea — an international day of service — not simply a movement, but a phenomenon. For Timms, it started with two words: “I believe.” Used in a charitable context, these two words are powerful. I believe that I can make a difference. I believe that I can influence change. I believe that I can provide inspiration.
Yours & One Other believes that providing our youth with accessible opportunities to enjoy the game can shape their lives and fuel individual growth. Yours & One Other believes in the power of our Military programs that enhance the physical, mental, social, and emotional well-being of current and former members of the military. Yours & One Other believes in the power of play and the power of golf, and we trust its potential to enhance and transform lives at every age.
GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. GivingTuesday harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world. GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together.
