Join the Power of Radical Generosity on GivingTuesday
Some call it Random Acts of Kindness, others a simple act of giving. No matter what it is to you, giving of yourself lifts two people. The one you give to and yourself. You can give to others any time, but one organization has set up a day dedicated to giving – GivingTuesday. If you want to participate, here’s what you need to know.
What is GivingTuesday?
According to the GivingTuesday website, it was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. It started in New York City and morphed into an independent nonprofit and global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. GivingTuesday occurs the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, which this year is November 30.
How to participate
The great thing about GivingTuesday is there are no requirements – you can do whatever feels right to you. It can be as simple as smiling at a stranger or as big as organizing a food or clothing drive. The way to make the most of this day is to do something that is meaningful to you. Do something in your own community. Check to see if there’s an organization that you can help or participate with. Or keep it simple and use some of the ideas on the GivingTuesday site – go to the Generosity Idea Factory section part way down.
