#GivingTuesday: The Global Generosity Movement


It seems like the holiday décor took over in stores before we even finished our Halloween candy this year. If you’re like most, including Charlie Brown, you find the commercialism of the season to be overwhelming.

Luckily, there’s a way to usher in the holiday season that actually feels good while doing good for others! We’re talking, of course, about #GivingTuesday, the “global generosity movement” that simply asks people to “help others through the gift of your time, donations, goods or your voice.”

#GivingTuesday 2019 falls on December 3 this year. There will be so many opportunities for you to be a part of it, the question shouldn’t be if you will contribute but how. If you don’t know much about #GivingTuesday, let us assure you this movement is the real deal. On #GivingTuesday 2018 nearly $400 million were raised in the US alone bringing the total amount raised online for charity on #GivingTuesday since its inception in 2012 to over one billion dollars!

So with less than three weeks until the big day, it’s time to start thinking about what you will do to help propel the movement to even bigger heights this year. Simply consider what charity or organization you’d like to support and then determine how you will help: donate cash, donate needed goods, volunteer your time or services, and/or raise awareness.

YouGiveGoods makes it easy to join the #GivingTuesday movement by shopping online for most-needed goods for charity. And, on December 3, all purchases of $50+ on any YouGiveGoods drive, will earn a 10% cash back gift for the charity, courtesy of YouGiveGoods.

You can make an even bigger impact by running your own YouGiveGoods event raising goods for your favorite charity. Simply personalize your event and invite friends and family to shop online.

And, just who is YouGiveGoods and how did we get so good at facilitating giving, you may ask? Learn more about us here.

Whatever avenue you choose, be sure to be a part of #GivingTuesday this year. Let’s help keep the momentum going and build the movement that is making a real impact in communities across the country.
