What is GivingTuesday?
GivingTuesday started as a day for anyone, anywhere to give, and it's grown into the biggest giving movement in the world.
Celebrated each year on the Tuesday following U.S. Thanksgiving, and fueled by the power of social media, GivingTuesday inspires millions of people across the globe to show up and give back to causes and issues that matter to them. The goal is to create a massive wave of generosity that lasts well beyond that day, and touches every person on the planet. GivingTuesday takes place on December 3, 2019 this year.
When GivingTuesday launched in the US in 2012, we believed that technology and social media could be used to make generosity go viral; that people want to give and to talk about giving. People and organizations around the world proved us right. In just seven years, GivingTuesday has changed how we think about generosity and showed just how much power communities everywhere have to create change.
