Small Businesses Give Back Like the Big Guys

BEAVERTON, OR–(Marketwired – Oct 13, 2014) – Act-On Software, the leading provider of marketing automation for small and mid-size businesses, today announced that it has partnered with GLIDE, a non-profit working to alleviate hunger and homelessness in San Francisco for its latest corporate social initiative the #TchotchkeTchallenge. The challenge takes place October 14th and 15th at Chronicle Books in San Francisco, CA.

The Tchotchke Tchallenge is a collaborative two-day effort to encourage Moscone event goers to donate the conference tchotchkes collected to charity. All contributions made will go directly to GLIDE. In organizing this tchotchke drive, Act-On hopes to demonstrate that any business, no matter the size or budget, has the ability to support charitable causes.

Tradeshows are notorious for tchotchkes like pens, notebooks, water bottles and small electronics. Conference attendees are typically overloaded with dozens of these items while visiting exhibiting sponsors and the majority of the time do not have the suitcase capacity to lug the tchotchkes back to the office.

“Companies big and small can contribute to the cause and help GLIDE in their mission to alleviate suffering and break the cycles of poverty,” said Nicole Brown, Director of Institutional Giving at GLIDE. “We appreciate Act-On’s innovative approach to spreading awareness to GLIDE’s mission, and in understanding that a little effort goes a long way.”

To take the #TchotchkeTchallenge:

  • Visit Chronicle Books at 165 4th St., San Francisco, CA (opposite Moscone West)
    • Tuesday, October 14th from 11:00am to 2:00pm
    • Wednesday, October 15th from 10:00am to 4:00pm

Located at Ellis and Taylor in the Tenderloin, one of San Francisco’s harshest urban environments, GLIDE is an oasis that has served the poor and disenfranchised for over 50 years. GLIDE is unconditional in its love, support and commitment to the community it serves — providing a range of holistic services from serving over 850,000 free meals a year, to providing affordable housing, free or low-cost state-of-the-art healthcare along with dozens of other programs that help to alleviate suffering and break the cycles of poverty and marginalization. With an unwavering commitment grounded in spirituality and emotional understanding, GLIDE is a leading organization for social justice — inspiring the larger community to celebrate humanity through compassion, generosity and acceptance. For more information about GLIDE, please call (415) 674-6000 or visit
