About GivingTuesday:

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 with a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past eight years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity. Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or a stranger, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give. GivingTuesday strives to build a world in which the catalytic power of generosity is at the heart of the society we build together, freeing dignity, opportunity and fairness around the world.
