Whew – it’s been a hectic couple of days! …all the preparation for the Thanksgiving meal, whether that included travel or cleaning house, choosing to ignore Black Friday madness or jump into the fray, and prepping for Cyber Monday – Now people want to add one more day of commitment – #GivingTuesday! What do they (we) want from you!Now in its fourth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
The Big Ideas Behind #GivingTuesday
#GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; and brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners— nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals—to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness. As a global movement, #GivingTuesday unites countries around the world by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.
This year’s partner, PayPal is aiming to set the Guinness World Record for most money raised in 24 hours. Any gift via PayPal, for any charity, will count towards this attempt.
We’re hoping you’ll make that donation to INOBTR and remember that no amount is too small. Just $10 will help provide handouts for schools, $25 will provide pencils and school supplies for a classroom and $100 will provide an interactive session for one school to help our children learn how to be safe online. Every penny helps protect children. Won’t you give to them today?
