During the holiday season, we have special days for shopping – Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
On #GivingTuesday, we have a day for giving back.
#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Always the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, this year’s #GivingTuesday will take place on November 27th, inspiring people to collaborate and give back.
Giving Tuesday was founded in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y, a community and cultural center in New York City. Last year, over $300 million was raised online to benefit a broad range of organizations, and much more was given in volunteer hours, food and clothing, and acts of kindness.
#GivingTuesday has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses, and communities in countries around the world. Millions of people come together to support the causes they believe in and the communities where they live. Every act of generosity counts, and each means even more when we give together.
