Guide to Giving
In 2018, people in more than 150 countries participated in what's become known as Giving Tuesday. A movement that started as a 2012 collaboration between New York City's 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation, Giving Tuesday has become a firmly rooted, incredibly successful global event that presents an opportunity to give back to causes or issues that matter to you. Last year, people made 3.6 million donations on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, and organizations raised more than $380 million. In the seven years since the campaign began, more than $1 billion has been raised in the U.S. alone through online donations. This year, Giving Tuesday will take place on December 3. Here are some ways to get involved and give back. For more feel good stories about philanthropic efforts, check out 26 Companies That Are Doing Good Deeds With Your Dollars.
