What is #Giving Tuesday?
Now celebrating its fourth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving propelled by the power of social media and collaboration. The day of global giving takes place on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the United States) and the well known shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday was created by the 92nd Street Y and United Nations Fund in 2012 with the goal of starting a movement around charitable giving at the beginning of the holiday season.
Why #GivingTuesday was Created
The creators of #GivingTuesday defined the days as this:
“#GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners— nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals—to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness.
As a global movement, #GivingTuesday unites countries around the world by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.”
Anyone, anywhere can get involved in #GivingTuesday! We hope you will consider joining too!
