CTEF Joins Global GivingTuesday Movement to Raise Awareness for CTI Program
GivingTuesday represents 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, millions of people across the globe 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.
For CTEF, GivingTuesday is about raising awareness and financial support not just for the ceramic tile and stone industry professional programs it offers, but also appreciation for the strong community of passionately dedicated ceramic tile artisans, installers, suppliers and specifiers committed to elevating the standards and expectations for tile installations and the importance of Qualified Labor. The CTI community sponsors, volunteers for, promotes, educates, hosts hands-on testing events, encourages participation, celebrates successes and generally supports ongoing tile industry learning and excellence.
"For all who help make CTEF and the CTI program the tile industry game-changer it is, I encourage you to participate in GivingTuesday,"
Founded in 2012, GivingTuesday has inspired millions of people to give back and support the causes they believe in. Over $400 million was raised online in 2018 to benefit a tremendously broad range of organizations, and much more was given in volunteer hours, donations of food and clothing, and acts of kindness.
