This year, we’d like to encourage you to participate in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Occurring this year on December 1, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
Last year, more than 30,000 organizations in 68 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday. Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities. We invite you to join the movement and to help get out the give this December 1st.
#GivingTuesday celebrates generosity by providing people everywhere with an opportunity to give more, give smarter, and give great.
#GivingTuesday unifies charities, corporations, small business, and individuals from across the globe to show that the world gives as good as it gets.
You don’t have to be a world leader or a billionaire to give back. #GivingTuesday is about ordinary people coming together doing extraordinary things.
Those who are interested in joining the #GivingTuesday initiative can visit the #GivingTuesday website, Facebook page or follow @GivingTues and the #GivingTuesday hashtag on Twitter.
