What is #GivingTuesday?
Launched by 92nd Street Y in 2012 as a charitable answer to the Black Friday and Cyber Monday retail shopping days, #GivingTuesday is a worldwide movement to encourage giving and celebrate generosity. Harnessing the collective power of charities, businesses, and individuals, the goal of this initiative is to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in giving all year round - especially during the holidays.
Whether you participate on #GivingTuesday during the months leading up to it, or as a way to launch your holiday giving campaign, there are many ways for charities, businesses, and individuals to make a difference.
