Atlanta, GA – (November 12, 2014) – As an Arthritis Foundation partner, Solaris Paper, Inc. (SPI) joins the global social movement known as #GivingTuesday on December 2, 2014. The Arthritis Foundation is the largest U.S. nonprofit organization that supports the more than 100 types of arthritis and related conditions.
#GivingTuesday, held the first Tuesday following Thanksgiving, kicks off the holiday giving season with a global day dedicated to charitable giving and volunteerism, to follow the widely recognized national events of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
In 2013, SPI was awarded the Arthritis Foundation's Ease-of-Use Commendation for its innovative Nvi® Electronic Tissue Dispenser. The Ease-of-Use Commendation recognizes the product for features that make it easy to use by people with arthritis and limited mobility.
According to the Arthritis Foundation, more than 50 million Americans suffer from arthritis, including 300,000 children. Solaris Paper encourages other businesses, societal groups, and community leaders to consider participating in #GivingTuesday and choosing the Arthritis Foundation when making donations.
