In 2012, Giving Tuesday began & the idea behind it was simple — encourage others to give back to their communities and/or organizations they care deeply about. It kicks off the giving season just a few weeks before Christmas. Giving Tuesday is always the Tuesday after Thanksgiving & is organized & celebrated with the simple aim of encouraging individuals, schools, businesses, organizations, churches and families to give to the less fortunate.
As a society, we spend so much money shopping — why not give to those that are in need?
Over $400M has been donated in the short seven years since the 'holiday' began.
Hopefully you're following us on social media & if not, now is the time! We are conducting a poll & asking the public to select a nonprofit from a list we have provided. The winner will receive a free fundraising website & 100% of proceeds will be donated to the organization.
