Since Giving Tuesday Military’s inaugural kick-off in 2019, the challenge for the military community to commit one million random acts of kindness has grown into a sweeping movement and flourishing non-profit organization.
Inspire Up, founded by Jessica Manfre, Maria Reed, Stacey Bilodeau, and Samantha Gomolka, is on a mission to change the world- one act of kindness at a time.
“Reflecting on the impact kindness has had in the last few years is overwhelming. We never thought we’d touch as many lives as we have through our programs and initiatives. Even now, our mission remains the same. We stand ready to serve our military connected and first responder community through education, engagement, and empowerment opportunities.”Jessica Manfre
This year, Giving Tuesday is on November 29th and the kindness wave is coming. Giving Tuesday Military has successfully recruited and activated over 120 local chapter ambassadors who are serving in and representing over 45 states and span across five countries.
Food drives, clothing collections, blood drives, support for children in foster care, and many more projects are already underway. GTM leaders truly believes ambassadors make significant impact in their communities and abroad. Inspire Up is here to empower them to keep making a difference.
