This year, on Tuesday, November 27, 2012, we are part of a call to action and national movement that will change the calendar and help make history. We are celebrating a new day dedicated to giving—when nonprofits, families, businesses, community centers, students, retailers and more will all come together to create #GivingTuesday—a new movement to celebrate giving and encourage more, better, and smarter giving during the holiday season. GuideStar is a proud nonprofit partner of the #GivingTuesday initiative.
#GivingTuesday will create a national day of giving around the annual shopping and spending season, typically the giving season's "opening day." The #GivingTuesday campaign will provide a platform for you, your organization, and the world to help make this season the biggest giving season yet!
We invite you to be part of this national celebration of our great tradition of generosity. #GivingTuesday will show how Americans can do much more with our wallets than just consume.
What can you and your organization do to be involved in #GivingTuesday? It's easy! Here are some ideas:
The success of #GivingTuesday depends on our collective efforts, so on behalf of the entire initiative, thank you for anything you can do. You are the most important part of making this movement a reality.
