If you saved on Black Friday, give on #GivingTuesday!

It’s #GivingTuesday! We’re celebrating by helping Americares assemble emergency aid kits for those in need.
Director of Corporate Responsibility and Employee Engagement, Voya Financial

During my long tenure with Voya Financial, I have witnessed incredible growth and change within our organization. Yet, throughout this great transformation, our commitment to community and the passion of our employees has remained consistent. In fact, it’s gotten stronger.

While our employees give tirelessly of their time and money year-round, the holiday season shines a brighter light on those in need. This year, Voya is proud to join consumers and corporations around the world in celebrating Giving Tuesday -- a global movement promoting philanthropy and kindness. Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday shifts the focus from consumerism to charitable giving. Just last year, $117 million was raised for charities in more than 70 countries.

It is only fitting that in our first year celebrating this global “holiday,” Voya has joined forces with Americares – an organization we have supported for more than 10 years – to assemble emergency aid kits for victims of natural disaster across the country. 30 employees from Voya’s Windsor and New York sites will travel to Americares’ Stamford, Connecticut, headquarters to participate.

I couldn’t be more proud to work alongside my fellow Voya employees, who continue to raise the bar for charitable giving and community service. To learn more about how you can support Giving Tuesday, visit the movement’s website.

Thank you, and enjoy your time with loved ones this holiday season.
