Match.com Makes Philanthropy Sexy at Singles Stir Events on #GivingTuesday

Amidst the crazy, consumer-driven holiday season, Match.com and Charity: water have teamed up to participate in #givingtuesday, a day meant to raise awareness and funds for charities across the world. In celebration of this philanthropic day, Match.com is hosting 16 Stir events in 14 major cities across the country, where singles will contribute to a great cause through Charity: water.

Charity: water is an organization where 100% of their efforts go towards helping to provide fresh, clean water wells to cities in Ethiopia. Match.com hopes to raise enough through the contributions of their singles at the Stir events to provide a well in Ethiopia (roughly $10,000 U.S. dollars). You can keep up with Match.com singles’ efforts (as well as make a donation yourself) through our campaign page on Charity: water’s website here!

In the upcoming year, Stir by Match.com will continue to partner with other influential charities to provide singles with the chance to meet someone while being a part of a greater cause at the same time. You can find out more about all the Stir events Match.com is offering in your area by signing onto your Match.com account today!
