Created in 2012 as a day to do good, Giving Tuesday is held the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. On the last GivingTuesday, Dec. 3, 2019, the global giving day generated $2 billion in giving, just in the United States, and inspired millions of people worldwide to volunteer, perform countless acts of kindness, and donate their voices, time, money and goods.
#GivingTuesdayNow, on May 5, 2020, is being deployed in response to needs expressed by communities and leaders around the world during the global pandemic.
#GivingTuesdayNow is designed to drive an influx of grassroots generosity, citizen engagement, businesss and philanthropy activation, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world. It's a day when we can all come together and give back in all ways, no matter who or where we are.
#GivingTuesdayNow is an opportunity for people around the world to stand together in unity - to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and heal.
