The chill in the air,  the uptick in Best Buy commercials and the ever-present threat of having to scrape your car windshield in the frigid morning temps can only mean one thing….

#GivingTuesday* is upon us! 

Dhani Jones Bow Tie Cause

Even Dhani Jones will be sporting his CoEd Bow Tie on Dec 3rd.

Help us create some buzz on social media this #Giving Tuesday by participating in CoEd’s awesomeness campaign. Here’s how:

1. SNAP: 

Snap a pic of you wearing your CoEd bow tie…or Guatemalan accessories. Submit your photo to us by November 25th to be entered for a chance to win a bag of authentic Guatemalan coffee (percolation perfection!) and a Guatemala t-shirt, along with being featured on our blog, Facebook page, etc. Click here to submit your photo

Feel free to get creative with the setting for your photo… like your daughter’s wedding!

Not interested in sharing your selfie? Tell us in a few short words what happened when you wore your bow tie or accessory out on December 3rd.


Share our campaign ahead of time to help raise awareness and get others involved. Don’t worry; you’re in good company–Dhani Jones will be rocking a CoEd bow tie, along with our pals Randy from Beers and Beans and Josh and Chuck from Stuff You Should Know.

3. WEAR:

Wear your bow tie or other Guate swag (you know you have Guatemalan jewelry, scarves, belts, huipiles and tapestries galore, so get some use out of them!) on the official Giving Tuesday, December 3rd, to tell the world that you support education in Guatemala. Post a photo of yourself on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to show your friends why rocking a CoEd bow tie or Guate accessories is the easiest way to spread the word about CoEd.

Giving Tuesday with Bow Tie Cuase

It’s as simple as SNAP, SHARE, & WEAR, so we hope to see you all rocking your bow ties and accessories for CoEd on December 3rd.

The best news? If you don’t have a bow tie yet, there’s still time to order one.

Alright, y’all. Go forth and spread the word. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

*If you’re not familiar with GivingTuesday, it is the campaign to kick off the holiday giving season with a philanthropic day after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Its aim is to generate awareness and raise funds for nonprofits and to inspire a spirit of volunteerism and generosity.
