An Overview of GivingTuesday

GivingTuesday is coming, less than 40 days to go!

As stated on the main website, GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

On December 3, 2019, join the movement and give – whether it’s some of your time, a donation, or the power of your voice in your local community.
In 2018 the movement helped NGOs to raise online $ 400 million in the U.S.

It’s a simple idea. Whether you come together with your family, your community, your company or your organization, find a way to give back and then share your idea.

One of the best ways to get involved is in your own community. They’ve created a directory to help you find organizations, charities, events and more in your own community. 
Community campaigns are either a geographic coalition of nonprofits working together on GivingTuesday, or a single nonprofit that is rallying around a cause in a community-wide effort.
There are over 170 community campaigns being organized in the United States, but what started as a day in the US, has quickly grown into a worldwide celebration of generosity and our shared capacity to give. To date, GivingTuesday activities have been tracked in nearly every country and territory, and over 60 of these countries are home to national GivingTuesday movements of their own.
