Happy #GivingTuesday!

GivingTuesday1

 

You’ve heard of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday – 2013 is ushering in a day to set aside the bustle of consumerism that sometimes overtakes the Holidays season, a day dedicated to supporting charitable acts and organizations worldwide:  Giving Tuesday.

 

Giving Tuesday is based on a simple idea:  pay it forward and then spread the word. Work with your family, your company, or your organization to give to those in need in your community, or give to a charity that provides services and relief around the world. Once you give, tell everyone you can about how you are giving, to spread the word about Giving Tuesday and encourage them to join the effort!

 

Many influential charitable forces are working together to launch #GivingTuesday. As stated on their website, “New York’s 92nd Street Y has been the catalyst and incubator for #GivingTuesday, bringing the expertise of 139 years of community management to the project, and providing #GivingTuesday a home.  The United Nations joined as a partner, bringing its strategic and communications clout to the project.” #GivingTuesday is also endorsed by The Giving Institute, Giving USA Foundation, InterAction, and the Dorothy A. Johnson Center on Philanthropy.
