Black Friday / Cyber Monday Weekend

November 29 - December 2, 2024


The busiest time of year for retail is the Black Friday Cyber Monday weekend. Every business will be looking for the latest Black Friday ideas to retain customers - the traditional approach was to massively discount items more and more stores are choosing to give back and donate.


While Give Back Friday is a more general approach to supporting a charity over the weekend, there are more and more options available like Blue Friday and Green Friday (see below).


Charities and Causes to support on Black Friday:


  • Woman's Aid - donations help provide life-saving services to women and children across the UK

  • Support Dogs - Provide, Train, and support specialist assistance dogs to increase independence and quality of life for people with various medical conditions

  • World Bicycle Relief - support goes towards creating and providing bicycles to those living in remote communities


Green Friday

November 29, 2024


With the heavy environmental footprint associated with Traditional Black Friday, Green Friday has come out as a sustainable alternative. For this day brands will choose to donate and support a sustainable initiative instead of offering massive discounts.


Brands like AYM have run successful Green Friday campaigns. With the 10 for 10 initiative, they offered their customers a 10% discount on all items while ensuring that 10% of sales were donated to the World Land Trust Save an acre programme.
