by #GivingTuesday UK category: Charity
The simple idea behind #GivingTuesday is to encourage people, charities and businesses to donate time, money or their voice to help a good cause.
Do one thing for charity or for someone you like, love or might need your help on the day. Give away unwanted clothes. Give blood. Give an hour of your time. Pledge to do something regularly to support a charity. Support a #GivingTuesday partner with one of their campaigns.
We're also encouraging people to share their #GivingTuesday acts of generosity on social media by taking an #unselfie - a picture showing a declaration of who and how you're supporting charities or others on the day.
#GivingTuesday has grown into a global movement, covering countries like The United States, Australia, Singapore, Canada, much of Latin America and Israel.
In 2014 the campaign is being launched in the UK by the Charities Aid Foundation with support from Blackbaud.
#GivingTuesday (2nd December) is a global day of giving. After the sales of Black Friday and the online shopping boom on Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is an opportunity to come together to show the world why it’s good to give. Whether it’s making a donation, volunteering your time or just spreading the word at the start of the Christmas shopping season, #GivingTuesday is a call to action for everyone who wants to give something back.
