WHAT IS #GIVINGTUESDAY?

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.

Giving Tuesday is a day positioned within the December holiday shopping season that takes a timeout from the excessive consumerism of the season and refocuses our lives on helping others.  This day, created by several nonprofits, began a few years ago.  It connects social media networks and nonprofit missions in the hopes of raising awareness and donations for individual causes.  What began as an idea by a few nonprofits in the United States a few years ago has grown into a global phenomenon.  With Giving Tuesday only 64 days away, how will your nonprofit position itself in this new day for philanthropy?  Click here to learn more, see examples and gain tools.
