This Valentine’s Day just got a little sweeter as Americans everywhere are invited to help spread the love with the iGive World’s Largest Valentine. 80 members of the iGive community will pop-up in Chicago, San Francisco and New York City this Thursday, February 14, to display a 20’ x 24’ Valentine’s Day card.
The larger-than-life Valentine serves as a reminder that the holiday is about more than gifts, candies and flowers; it’s an opportunity to do good for our youth, and all of the causes close to our hearts and homes.
The online charity model is looking to redefine one of America’s most beloved holidays so that future generations can recognize the holiday as a time to give to those in need. From your local PTA to school marching band to missing children’s advocacy groups, iGive is a simple and quick way to support your charity of choice, no matter how big or small.
With the conscious click of a button, shoppers can browse more than 1,200 leading retailers, including Amazon, JCPenney, Nordstrom, Home Depot, Expedia and Macy’s. To date, iGive shoppers have raised over $6.5 million for over 44,000 causes.
If you can’t get enough of the warm and fuzzy feeling of V-Day and you’re a local, head to Grant Park in Chicago at 11 a.m., Time Square in New York City at 8:30 a.m. and Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco at 9 a.m., to open the biggest Valentine Card you’ve ever seen! And if you can’t make it, iGive invites people nationwide to share an online version (see the photo above) with family and friends.
