There’s Thanksgiving Thursday, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday! Have you ever heard about Giving Tuesday? Yeah, it’s a new, unofficial holiday for charity. It’s when most Americans decide to give to their favorite charities through monetary donations, volunteering, rehabilitation efforts, etc.
I have decided to give information about Giving Tuesday to those who knew nothing about it. Knowledge is Key remember?
How can you GIVE on GIVING TUESDAY?
Activate Your Network: Tell five close friends, family members, or work colleagues about your favorite cause or philanthropic organization. The fundraising maxim that “people give to people, not organizations” is as true today as it ever was. Identifying sympathetic, like-minded potential donors from among your personal network and telling them the story of your history with an organization is perhaps the surest way to get others involved.
Launch a Local Charity Drive: Organize a food, toy, or coat drive in your office, school, neighborhood or apartment building to benefit a favorite non-profit organization. All it takes are a few well-placed signs, a sturdy box, and reserves of goodwill.
Volunteer: Take a shift at a nearby soup kitchen or food pantry. Share your know-how by tutoring underprivileged schoolchildren or holding a professional training session at work. Participate in a school or neighborhood clean-up, renovation or gardening project. There are countless ways in which to contribute to good causes without writing a check.
