“GIVING TUESDAY”: A NEW WAY TO LAUNCH THE GIVING SEASON

Giving Tuesday

We have a day for giving thanks, and then earlier and earlier each year, the emphasis quickly turns to commercialism rather than the true spirit of the season.
 
Black Friday. Cyber Monday. Debt. Stress. Misplaced Emphasis.
 
Thankfully, this year there’s an opportunity to interrupt that cycle. Insert Giving Tuesday!
 
#GivingTuesday™ is a campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations.
 
On Tuesday, December 3, 2013, charities, families, businesses and individuals will come together to transform the way people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.
 
It’s a simple idea. Find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to join in acts of giving. Help a neighbor, volunteer, mentor, make a donation. Get creative and tell everyone you can about what you are doing and why it matters!
 
Join a national celebration of our great tradition of generosity.
 
And together we’ll create ways to give more, give better and give smarter.
