#GivingTuesday launched in 2012 as a counterbalance to the consumerism surrounding retail-based “holidays” like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This global day of giving encourages donations of money or time to various philanthropies. It’s raised hundreds of millions of dollars since its inception. Want to start your own fundraiser?
• Brainstorm a cause at work or home. Consider your networks, connections, and a great cause.
• Spread the word through all social platforms. Tell your story!
• Go big with giving incentives and daylong updates
• Say thanks!
#GivingTuesday is the best way to spread some kindness. It never goes out of season!
