08 Aug What is the “Giving Tuesday” ?
You may or may not have heard of Giving Tuesday and the #givingtuesday wave that spread through twitter, facebook or instagram.
Giving Tuesday is the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, when people are still in a great mood and might be more engaged to give back to charity.
The goal of this very special day is to create a wave of generosity from all over the world. It should empower people to feel good about giving back to others in need. It should help to bring communities together for the greater good. And since the first launched back in 2012 the GivingTuesday movement has grown quite popular, thanks to increased awareness, social media and the internet. The hashtag #givingtuesday has become a wave among social platforms and the results are absolutely stunning.
If you go on youtube, you can find many many heartwarming videos if people trying to give back or heart-warming stories, like this one:
So if you have the means to help, be that time or money, we absolutely think, that you should participate and try to help on this charitable day. The movement is a great way to bring happiness back into the world.
Participating in Giving Tuesday is a great opportunity to step away from the day to day in your life and find a cause that truly matters to you. It is, after all, a special day where you can truly make a difference.
We hope that this great movement will grow even bigger in the coming years and it can, if all of us work together to give back on this special day.
