Tomorrow is #GivingTuesday. Never heard of it? It’s a global effort to celebrate generosity, particularly following Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It’s a special call to action to create a national day of giving to inspire personal philanthropy during the holidays.
Participating is easy… Select a charity. Give a donation!
Need help finding a charity? You can go to GivingTuesday.org to search by state (such as organizations in North Carolina) or you can search globally. Search their News Section for features posted by various partners. Or, head over to Twitter and watch the action using the hashtag #GivingTuesday.
Here are some other cool things that the folks at GivingTuesday have cooked up for tomorrow:
- Watch a Virtual Giving Tower grow!
- Create a GratitudeGram to post to social media
- Join in the #GivingTuesday Google Hangout tomorrow at 1:30 pm ET
- Be sure to take an #UnSelfie to show that the world gives as good as it gets!
As for me, I’ll be giving to the Food Bank of Central & Eastern NC. They have a goal of $10,000 towards their Holiday Meals Drive. You may also want to check out some of my earlier posts with charitable recommendations related to Ebola Relief, organizations specializing in Holiday Gift Drives, and our Year-End Charity Selections from last year!
I hope you’ll take the opportunity to join in this global initiative to make the world a better place!
