#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities around the world. This year, #GivingTuesday is December 1, 2020. #GivingTuesday harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together.
