Ever thought that one day of giving thanks isn’t enough?
Get ready for #GivingTuesday
RAFI has joined #GivingTuesday, a first of its kind effort that will harness the collective power of a unique blend of partners—charities, businesses and individuals to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.
Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday will inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the organizations and causes they support.
The event will harness the power of social media to create a national momentum around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping.
Since its inception, the concept has gained considerable steam, and with the help of the United Nations Foundation and other founding partners, more than 15,000 organizations have joined the movement and are providing creative ways people can embrace #GivingTuesday and collaborate in their giving efforts to create meaningful change.
#GivingTuesday will take place on December 2, 2014, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
“#GivingTuesday is a counter narrative to Black Friday and Cyber Monday because it reminds us that the spirit of the holiday giving season should be about community and not just consumerism.”
– Kathy Calvin, CEO of the UN Foundation
