What is #GivingTuesday?
We have a day for
giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. This year help us create
#GivingTuesday. A new day for giving back. On Tuesday December 3, 2013,
global charities, families, businesses, community centers, students and
more will come together to create #GivingTuesday.
It’s a simple idea.
Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your
organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone
you can about how you are giving. Be a part of a national celebration
of our great tradition of generosity.
movement has sparked interest in countries around the world, where
people and organizations are creating their own initiatives to encourage
giving – whether money or time or both. These initiatives are
celebrating local heroes and providing opportunities for people to
connect with local causes.
