Event date: 11/27/2018 - 11/28/2018

November 27th is Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving promoted by social media. It’s become a tradition on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, as a way to offset the consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, to inaugurate the charitable season with a day-long focus on how to be of service – with your time, your ideas and your money.

Give This Tuesday

As a health and human services organization, we welcome this type of effort. What a lovely global phenomenon! In fact, last year, more than 700,000 people donated more than $116 million online in more than 70 countries due to the Giving Tuesday initiative. That’s astounding! And encouraging!

For this season, regardless of which tradition you follow or believe, is truly about our generous spirit as humankind. I would encourage you to think about how you can give this Tuesday. Let Giving Tuesday inspire you to dedicate your time, your talent, and your resources to meaningful causes that improve our world.
