Last year, we renamed Black Friday as “Glass Friday” for all Glassmen alumni and supporters. It’s a weekend many of us attended our first Glassmen camp and a day look back and think about how the corps helped you become who you are today. It’s also a chance to reconnect with your Glassmen family by reaching out to someone you’ve lost touch with.
Take part in our upcoming holiday by commenting here or joining the Facebook event and leaving a message on the event page for an alum, staff member, volunteer or fan who made your Glassmen experience unforgettable! Invite them to this event, tag them and let them know how much you appreciate it.
Reconnecting is more important than shopping, but we didn’t forget that Glass Friday is also Black Friday. Consider these shopping options:
1) iGive.com: Register and designate “Glassmen Alumni Association” as your charity to shop online at more than 1,500 retailers, including Barnes & Noble, Toys R Us, Kohl’s, Bed Bath & Beyond and Best Buy.
2) Amazon Smile: Choose “Glassmen Alumni Association” as your charity and take advantage of this year’s Black Friday deals on Amazon.
Using both of these options, a small percentage of your purchase goes to the GAA, to be used for initiatives storage of valuable Glassmen memories and future projects.
