The Message of #GivingTuesday Is to Do Good

Today is #GivingTuesday.

Created in 2012 to encourage people to “do good,” the day has spread worldwide, promoted by the Giving Tuesday organization. Its mission is to promote generosity and volunteerism. It encourages individuals to contribute to organizations of their choosing.

“GivingTuesday is about giving of all types,” explains the international organization. “Some may choose to give a financial contribution to their favorite cause or a fundraising drive, others will opt to reach out to neighbors, start an advocacy campaign, donate goods or extra supplies, share gratitude to frontline workers and those keeping us safe. If you can show generosity and share kindness, you have something to give!”

If you decide to contribute financially, check your organization or its Facebook page to see if it is participating in Facebook’s matching donations program on GivingTuesday. Contributions made to all participating organizations through Facebook will be matched 100% up to a total of $2 million; then Facebook will match 10% of the next $5 million in contributions.

Since the first GivingTuesday almost $2 billion has been contributed in the US alone. Beyond making a financial contribution, millions of people worldwide step forward every year on Giving Tuesday to volunteer their time to community organizations and nonprofits. Businesses, too, participate by organizing volunteer programs throughout the year.

“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,” says GivingTuesday.

“If you can show generosity and share kindness, you have something to give!”
