Week 88 of Action: Giving Tuesday
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving – November 29 – #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their end-of-year giving.
#GivingTuesday is more than a national day of giving; it’s a growing movement of nearly 7,000 partners that includes nonprofits, private companies, youth, parents and other members of the community who are committed to making a difference. On this day, you will have the opportunity to write a check to a worthy cause if you so wish, but you can also give your time, talents and expertise.
In 2015, nonprofits raised more than $117 million online on #GivingTuesday to help make the world a better place in countless ways. Much more was generated offline and through donations of time and other resources.
Everyone has something to give. #GivingTuesday is a day to inspire and improve our community and contribute to making it better. What better time to give than the holidays? What better day than #GivingTuesday?
