#GIVINGTUESDAY UK DAY OF GIVING
#GivingTuesday (1st December in 2015) is a global day of giving. After the sales of Black Friday and the online shopping boom on Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is an opportunity to come together to show the world why it’s good to give. Whether it’s making a donation, volunteering your time or just spreading the word at the start of the Christmas shopping season, #GivingTuesday is a call to action for everyone who wants to give something back.
It has grown into a global movement, covering countries like The United States, Australia, Singapore, Canada, much of Latin America and Israel.
In 2014 the campaign was launched in the UK by the Charities Aid Foundation with support from Blackbaud. The simple idea behind #GivingTuesday is to encourage people, charities and businesses to donate time, money or their voice to help a good cause.
