On Giving Tuesday, we celebrate the fact that every act of generosity matters; that everyone has the ability to contribute to the greater good. The idea is simple. Find a way to give back to your neighborhood, community, or country. Every ripple has the potential to trigger an entire movement. Share a smile, volunteer your time, help a neighbor, or donate to an organization that contributes to a cause you believe in. The choice is yours.
With everyone working together, Giving Tuesday inspires radical generosity and systemic change. To help kick off this year’s season of giving, CBDistillery® is supporting Project Sanctuary, a charitable organization that benefits active-duty service members and veteran families from all branches of service. Whether you’ve been celebrating Giving Tuesday for years or are participating for the first time, you can help us help others by joining our fund-raising efforts.
Celebrating Generosity and Charitable Giving
Giving Tuesday began as a social media promotion organized by a small group of nonprofits. On the first Giving Tuesday in 2012, New York City’s 92nd Street Y joined forces with Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact. Organizers wanted to kick off a season of generosity, so they created a hashtag, invited public participation, and sparked the fire of a global movement.1,2 Today, the first Tuesday following Thanksgiving and Black Friday marks the beginning of a global season of charitable giving that helps an impressive number of nonprofits do what they do best.
This year, Giving Tuesday falls on November 30th. If you’ve been looking for a meaningful way to jump-start this year’s season of giving, consider participating in our donation event. How can you help? By sharing your enthusiasm for CBDistillery® products with your family and friends and spreading the word. On Giving Tuesday, CBDistillery® is offering a 25% site-wide discount on our pure, potent hemp-derived CBD products. We’re also donating 5% of Giving Tuesday proceeds to an organization committed to positive change, Project Sanctuary.
Why Support Project Sanctuary?
Founded in 2007, Project Sanctuary was built on the principle that when a person serves in the military, their entire family also serves. But until Project Sanctuary was first established in the mountains of Colorado, there were no organizations dedicated to helping military families as a unit. Today, Project Sanctuary has grown into a Four-Star charity helping at-risk military families nationwide. When you shop with us on November 30th, you’ll be contributing to numerous services helping veterans and military families cope with the many challenges of military life.3
Supporting Project Sanctuary helps the organization host therapeutic retreats in eight states across the country. Programs are designed and staffed by Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialists, licensed social workers, and counselors. Therapeutic Retreats and outdoor recreational activities help families break down relationship barriers, learn new ways to communicate, find effective ways to resolve conflict, and more.
Project Sanctuary also helps provide financial assistants and long-term (or emergency) mental health services. All project Sanctuary Family Support services are led by licensed, clinically trained staff and are available for all veterans, active-duty service members, and their children and spouses. The organization also provides counseling referrals and connections to services provided by collaborating agencies and partners.
Destination Resource Weekends are uniquely focused on the individual needs of every participant. These carefully orchestrated weekends help couples (and singles) identify the resources needed to help their family move forward, whether they might need help connecting with financial planning services, employment resources, services for psychological and emotional wellbeing, or recreational opportunities. The goal of each program and service provided by Project Sanctuary is to help military families heal and thrive.

Based on an internal survey of nearly 2000 CBD users, most survey respondents report favorable results using hemp-derived CBD products for relaxation, better sleep, and for inflammation, pain, or stiffness after physical activity. An impressive 89% also report that CBD helps calm their mind, and 88% tell us that hemp-derived CBD products also help with mild or temporary anxiety.
Why Do So Many People Choose CBDistillery® Products?
When CBDistillery® was founded in 2016, it was clear that the industry was over-run with high-priced, low-quality CBD products quite unlikely to be of any value. Back then, far too many people were being taken advantage of. CBD was gaining a lot of negative press because reports were consistently showing that most tinctures, capsules, and lotions had far less CBD than specified on product labels. We knew we could do better, so we did.
From day one, we’ve been on an unwavering mission to be the premier source of high-quality, third-party tested CBD, a brand consumers can trust. Our plans also included establishing our company as a respected source of the type of information people need to make informed health and wellness decisions. Today, CBDistillery™ is a reputable industry leader with more than 2 million satisfied customers and tens of thousands of verified reviews and testimonials.
If you’re ready to help us support Project Sanctuary, visit CBDistillery® on November 30th to take advantage of our 25% sitewide discount. Five percent of all proceeds raised during the event will go to Project Sanctuary.
