GivingTuesday is a movement that started back in 2012 with the idea to highlight a special day that encourages people to do something good. The movement has grown into a global event that sparks inspiration in millions to give back to the community in some way.
This year, GivingTuesday is celebrated on November 30th, and the movement encourages acts of kindness EVERY DAY, not just Tuesday. “It’s a simple idea: whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, 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,” states a quote on the GivingTuesday website.
