|Why does Pilot International celebrate Giving Tuesday?
GivingTuesday, taking place December 3rd, is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage giving and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Every year, on GivingTuesday, millions of people across the globe (almost 60 countries) mobilize to show up, give back, and change their communities. The goal is to create a massive wave of generosity that lasts well beyond that day, and touches every person on the planet.
Why Should I Give?
The contributions to the Pilot International 2019 GivingTuesday campaign benefit our Helmet Matching Grant Program. Clubs participate in our Signature Project promoting Pilot International by ordering quality, branded bicycle helmets to provide to individuals, starting them on a positive path to protect their brains for life. Pilot’s light shines in communities all around the world. Help Pilot continue to remain on our “True Course Ever” with your donation!
