Image result for holiday season"

Happy Thanksgiving! On behalf of the team at Ben Jen Holdings, we would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and a great weekend. As we approach the holiday season, some major retail holidays are upon us, including Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. Many retailers have specials and deals for consumers from brick-and-mortar stores and to e-commerce sites. Given that Ben Jen Holdings backs a lot of smaller companies including startups, we encourage everyone to shop small this season by supporting your local entrepreneur or business.

Black Friday: November 29, 2019
Small Business Saturday: November 30, 2019
Cyber Monday: December 2, 2019

While people are shopping for great deals during this holiday season, it’s important not to forget about the numerous nonprofits and charities that help support local communities through their various ethos and missions. #GivingTuesday is coming up on Tuesday, December 3rd, and we wanted to give a shout out to some of the nonprofit organizations that we support.
