Mobilizing the World Through Giving
In 2012 two organizations had an idea around celebrating generosity, and they called it #GivingTuesday. GivingTuesday is a movement. Traditionally, one that occurs the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. And, since then, it has grown to become the biggest global day of giving each year.
So why is this important now? Because like those that founded #GivingTuesday, we believe that generosity has the power to unite and heal communities in good times and bad. A global threat like COVID-19 affects more than just the infected. A pandemic like this touches every person on the planet, and it presents an opportunity to come together as a global community.
#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020, as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
We'd like to invite you to come together to drive a spike of generosity, citizen engagement, business and philanthropy activation, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world.
Together we can heal. Be a part of the solution: show your support and rally to do some good!
We will reach out again in the days ahead to share more details and invite you to join us to #DoMoreGood! In the meantime, here is a link to learn more or get involved locally:
