What Is #GivingTuesday?
Created by the team at the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact at the 92nd Street Y—a cultural center in New York City that, since 1874, has been bringing people together around the values of service and giving back. Giving Tuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving. A team of influencers and founding partners joined forces, collaborating across sectors, offering expertise and working tirelessly, to launch Giving Tuesday and have continued to shape, grow and strengthen the movement.
GivingTuesday is a great day to remember the work that the non-profits and community centers do in our community and show your support. If you can chose to donate, know that your contributions are going towards our community. You can also help by spreading the word and letting others know about the work that these organizations do for the community. If you know about a great organization that should be recognized, tag them in the comments. Let others know what they do today so that they can continue to work for our tomorrow.
