On Thanksgiving we take a day to give thanks. On Black Friday and Cyber Monday we unleash the craziness that is holiday shopping. #GivingTuesday is a day that builds on the ideas of thanks and giving and encourages us all to give back. Now in its 4th year, #GivingTuesday is celebrated annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, this year falling on December 1.
Giving on #GivingTuesday can take many forms. From small acts of kindness to large donations to nonprofits, #GivingTuesday reminds us that the greatest gift is one that can never be repaid.
On this one day alone, we can make a real difference in the lives of those struggling in our communities, and help kick off a season of meaningful giving.
Be a part of this global day of giving by running a YouGiveGoods drive for your favorite charity.
Run a drive for food, toys, animal shelter items, coats/blankets/hats, personal care items, and more-- all brand-new goods purchased online and shipped for free to the charity at the close of the drive. Run your drive for any length of time as long as it's active on December 1 and you'll be included in our YouGiveGoods #GivingTuesday Campaign.
On December 1st, #GivingTuesday, and extended into December 2nd, YouGiveGoods will gift 10% cash to the chosen charity on all goods donations of $50 or more to any drive.
Seeing as "Give" is our middle name, #GivingTuesday is like our Superbowl. We want to do our part to ensure the day is a success. We hope our #GivingTuesday Give Back program will encourage anyone considering a goods donation, knowing their gift goes even further on #GivingTuesday.
