November 27 is a Giving Tuesday, a national holiday celebrated each year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, on which people come together to give back. This year, the Promotional Products Education Foundation (PPEF) is participating in Giving Tuesday to raise money for college scholarships for those with parents in the promotional products industry. Since 1989, PPEF has awarded more than $1.9 million in college scholarships to 1,013 students. This year it awarded $200,000 to 132 recipients. PPEF’s 2018 Giving Tuesday goal is $10,000 for tomorrow’s leaders in the promotional products industry.

The PPEF Executive Committee (pictured above) met at PPAI headquarters in Irving, Texas, this week, in advance of the full board of directors’ annual meeting during The PPAI Expo in January.

PPAI and PPEF are encouraging industry professionals to show their support for the Foundation with an “unselfie.” Here’s how: On a piece of paper, write why you are supporting PPEF, take an unselfie by holding the paper in front of your face and post it to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or any other social media site to raise awareness for PPEF’s Scholarship Fund. Don’t forget to use the hashtags #givingtuesday and #PPAIunselfie.
