Now that you’ve given thanks and found great deals during the universally celebrated shopping days of #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday, it’s time to turn your attention to giving back. Tomorrow we celebrate #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving powered by social media. It’s one of the best ways to get involved in your community and your favorite charities.
On Tuesday, November 27, 2018, donors, businesses, community centers, and nonprofit organizations around the world will come together for a common purpose: to celebrate good acts and giving. Quite simply, #GivingTuesday is one of the biggest fundraising days of the year.
Joining the movement is easy. First, consider ways you and your family can give, and then decide which charity to support. Keep in mind that giving comes in several ways: you can donate, you may volunteer for a cause, or spread awareness about your favorite charities – and you can do all these acts easily on social media.
If you’re looking for things happening in your neighborhood or an organization to give to or volunteer at, this handy search tool will help. You can also learn more about the global day of #GivingTuesday.
