It’s Giving Tuesday

The Tuesday after Thanksgiving has been designated “Giving Tuesday” – a special day for personal philanthropy, and other forms of giving. But where did Giving Tuesday come from?

According to the non-profit organization aptly named “givingtuesday.org”:

“GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of radical generosity around the world.

GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

GivingTuesday strives to build a world in which the catalytic power of generosity is at the heart of the society we build together, unlocking dignity, opportunity, and equity around the globe.

GivingTuesday’s global network collaborates year-round to inspire generosity around the world, with a common mission to build a world where generosity is part of everyday life.”
