After Black Friday and CyberMonday it’s time for Giving Tuesday. It’s a day dedicated to gratitude and giving to others.
#GivingTuesday is a campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations. #GivingTuesday inspires personal philanthropy and encourages bigger, better and smarter charitable giving during the holiday season, showing that the world truly gives as good as it gets.
This year’s theme is Great Giving and it’s important to make sure that your dollars count by donating to charities that have an important impact on those they serve.
How to get involved:
- Use GivingTuesday.org's resources to vet a non-profit organization and make a donation to the charity of your choice.
#Unselfie. Join the social media campaign by taking a "selfie" with a caption (or have it on a card in the picture) explaining how or why you and/or your friends are "giving" this year. Tag the photo with #GivingTuesday and #unselfie. #GivingTuesday will compile all the images for one awesome collage on December 2nd.
- Follow #GivingTuesday on Twitter @GivingTues and "like" their facebook page.
