We’re proud to have partnered with #GivingTuesday and are determined to turn December 2nd into a Global Day of Giving. Will you join us?
About #GivingTuesday: “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.”
We’re delighted to be working with #GivingTuesday to turn the day into a global movement, it’s already a massive success in The United States, Australia, Singapore, Canada, much of Latin America and Israel, but this year it’s time to bring on the Brits!
The 2014 campaign has been launched in the UK by the Charities Aid Foundation with support from Blackbaud and has one purpose – to encourage people, charities and businesses to donate time, money or their voice to help a good cause.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll communicate ways that you can support and benefit from #GivingTuesday, we will have collateral for you to use and exclusive rates from retailers for you to promote to your supporters. It’s all about raising awareness and getting your supporters shopping to raise money for you on December 2nd.
