Entering its tenth year, Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (This year November 30, 2021) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday kick off the charitable season when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Giving Tuesday is one of the best ways to get involved in your community and make a difference in the life of people and animals.
Since 2012, people from all over the world have given more than $1 Billion to causes on #GivingTuesday. #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog of resources.
Giving Tuesday 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, Giving Tuesday unites countries around the world by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another. For more information go to www.givingtuesday.org
