About #GivingTuesday


A new charity campaign called #GivingTuesday (2nd December) is a global day of giving. After the sales of Black Friday and the online shopping boom on Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is an opportunity to come together to show the world why it’s good to give. Whether it’s making a donation, volunteering time or just spreading the word at the start of the Christmas shopping season, #GivingTuesday is a call to action for everyone who wants to give something back.

The simple idea behind #GivingTuesday is to encourage people and businesses to donate time, money or their voice to help charitable causes. It truly is a global campaign with the US, Canada, Mexico, Israel, Australia, Singapore and many others all taking part.

The UK #GivingTuesday team are currently talking to charities and businesses and signing them up as partners. Partners are organisations who pledge to do something on December 2. This can range from holding your own fundraising event, to engaging with the campaign on social media and everything in between. There has been an excellent response so far and over 250 organisations are signed up. Please visit to see who is involved.
