What is "Giving Tuesday"?
- Giving Tuesday, created in 2012, is a holiday creating a global movement of generosity and kindness by inspiring people to donate to nonprofit organizations around the world.
- Similar to how Black Friday represents the beginning of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday is
the kickoff to the charitable giving season – placing focus on the true meaning of the season.
- It began as a social media movement. Donors
often share information about their favorite cause and organizations on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. –encouraging their friends and family to contribute as well!
