Thousands of volunteers and organizations will participate in the fifth annual #GivingTuesday today in an effort to further support the nonprofit sector and charitable organizations. According to the organization’s website, #GivingTuesday is a movement to designate a national day of giving on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
There are several ways that you or your organization can get involved. Individuals are invited to become a social media ambassador, and registered 501(c)3 or for-profit organizations with a commitment to benefit at least one charity can become official partners. The organization has also made several tools and resources available.
One of the many great aspects of charitable giving is the fact it can be done anytime and anywhere in this country. Having an organized charitable giving effort, though, certainly can help spur even more people into action.
