#GivingTuesday !

by Pennie on November 27, 2012

This year, on Tuesday, November 27, 2012, we are part of a call to action and national movement that will change the calendar and help make history. We are celebrating a new day dedicated to giving ‐‐ when charities, families, businesses, community centers, students, retailers and more will all come together to create #GivingTuesday – a new movement to celebrate giving and encourage more, better and smarter giving during the Holiday Season that we are proud to be part of.

#GivingTuesday will create a national day of giving around the annual shopping and spending season ‐‐ giving’s “opening day”.

What’s the #GivingTuesday message?

  • #GivingTuesday is a day to prove that giving back to our communities is part of a great tradition of philanthropy and volunteerism that helps make this nation strong.
  • It is an opportunity to be part of a national celebration of our great tradition of generosity, and #GivingTuesday is something that everyone can share. The more people who unite in these efforts, the more we will achieve.
  • Just as the retail sector has benefited from coordinating national shopping days around the holidays, #GivingTuesday wants to do the same thing for giving by uniting under one common purpose – charity.
  • #GivingTuesday will create a new narrative around the kickoff of the holiday season by celebrating how Americans can do much more with their wallets than consume.
  • #GivingTuesday will encourage us to do more and give more.
  • Americans are a generous people. We volunteer more, give more to charity, and support more causes than any other population around the world. We should foster and celebrate in that tradition.

Help spread the message!

I missed it but like the idea. Wish it would have received more attention because there is such a need — for the benefit of givers and receivers. Thanks for the post.

This is an awesome idea. I love to give at the holidays. I can only give alittle being on a fixed income. I believe every little bit helps,and God will bless you back a hundred fold or more. I’ve been blessed recently on Nicole’s Nickels so that’s why I love to give. I support this great thing. Thank you for sharing this :)
