Giving Tuesday: A Word from Larry O’Connor, OWC Founder and CEO

We here at OWC,, and the Rocket Yard blog have long been committed to giving by supporting projects and organizations such as Dell Children’s HospitalCharity WaterToys for Tots, and Head Start. Just as our commitment to the environment is an essential core value, so is giving to causes that help others, and promote a better world.

Today is “Giving Tuesday”—a name assigned to the first Tuesday following Thanksgiving in the U.S.—designated to be an international day of charitable giving. But giving is not something that should be limited to just one Tuesday a year.

Larry O’Connor, OWC Founder and CEO, shares:

“Giving Tuesday is a great opportunity to reach out and help someone – be it with your time, a physical donation of food or gifts, or a monetary donation. And while ’tis the season’ to give now, perhaps it’s also a good time to make an early New Year’s resolution to continue giving year-round. There are plenty of charities, institutions, and causes out there, and I encourage you to find and support the right one that’s near and dear to your heart.”

We hope that all Rocket Yard readers take this to heart and give in any way you can – not just today, but throughout the year. And we thank you for being such avid supporters of our online community by giving your time, thoughts, and expertise in everything we do!
