This year on Tuesday, 3 December, Australian businesses, not-for-profits, charities, community groups, families and individuals are encouraged to join a global movement and celebrate a day of giving to kick off the giving season. This day is called #GivingTuesday. Founded last year by New Yorkâ€™s 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation, #GivingTuesday is this year being adopted by Australia. So how can you get involved?
For not-for-profits and charities
Run your own initiative (no matter how big or small) with the theme of â€œgivingâ€. Register your event by signing up as a Partner. Activate your community and get them involved.
For businesses and corporates
Find a not-for-profit to support and show your giving spirit. Register what youâ€™re up to by signing up as a Partner and sharing what youâ€™re doing. Get your staff or team involved and spread the word.
For individuals/community groups
Keep an eye out for not-for-profit organisations or business who are running an event or run your own. Show your support via social media and let your friends and followers know who youâ€™re giving to and why.
