In Honor of #GivingTuesday: Accepting Nominations for 4th Annual #sharkATTACK

CLEVELAND, OH (November 13, 2018) – In honor of #GivingTuesday, the worldwide day where businesses and communities come together to champion the causes they believe in, shark&minnow will launch its 4th Annual #sharkATTACK on November 27, 2018.

“Each year, we join the #GivingTuesday movement and global day of giving to donate our expertise in strategy and design to one deserving non-profit in Cleveland,” says Eric Kogelschatz, Chief Strategy Officer, shark&minnow. “We help the organization to reframe challenges and reveal creative solutions. This is just one of the ways we give back to our community. Throughout the year, we partner with Harvey Rice Elementary School, part of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, where our employees read aloud to students and explore the world with students through stories. Giving back is integral to our efforts in civic engagement, placemaking and growing non-profit organizations.”

The 4th Annual #sharkATTACK features a Greater Cleveland non-profit organization tasked with presenting an articulated business challenge, to be solved by the shark&minnow team. The selected non-profit will walk away with an Action Plan to empower the organization to turn its challenge into an opportunity.
