NEW YORK, Nov. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Havas Health friends and colleagues have created a #GivingTuesday initiative with an especially personal perspective—it honors Christophe Foultier, a longtime Havas Health staffer who lost his life at the Bataclan massacre on Friday, Nov. 13.

Christophe was a colleague and art director for many years at Havas Health, and his colleagues and friends want to bring support to the family—his wife and two children—from around the world to honor his memory and help ensure a more financially settled future for them. A website has been created at All4Chris.com as a central destination, where the Havas community can go to share memories of Christophe, to honor him and to donate for his family.

#GivingTuesday, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, will be Dec. 1 this year. It marks the beginning of the holiday giving season and is a movement that aims to bring together individuals, communities and organizations in the spirit of giving; 30,000 partners around the world participated in #GivingTuesday 2014.

About #GivingTuesday
Now in its fourth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Created in 2012 by 92nd Street Y—a cultural center in New York City that, since 1874, has been bringing people together around the values of service and giving back—#GivingTuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving. A team of influencers and founding partners joined forces—collaborating across sectors, offering expertise and working tirelessly—to launch #GivingTuesday, and it has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog of resources.
