Everything You Need To Know For #GivingTuesday 2016

What is Giving Tuesday? Or, even better, what is #GivingTuesday?

Giving Tuesday (known on social media as #GivingTuesday) is an international day of giving back. We practice gratitude on Thanksgiving, find great deals at the mall on Black Friday and score big discounts online on Cyber Monday. And now, we have a day dedicated to celebrating generosity. 

As the #GivingTuesday movement says, "It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity."

When is #GivingTuesday? 

This year, #GivingTuesday is on Tuesday, November 29. Mark your calendars! 

Who should get involved with #GivingTuesday? 

Your mom, your dad, your sister, your brother. Grandma, Grandpa. Your kids. Your neighbors. Your mailman, your teacher, your barrista. You get the idea. 

But we'll start with something easy. The first person who should get involved with #GivingTuesday is YOU! 

How can I get involved with #GivingTuesday? 

We have big plans for #GivingTuesday this year. (BIG plans. The biggest plans we've ever had for #GivingTuesday!) Sign up today and we'll keep you posted on how you can get involved. We'll also tell you a bit more about Opportunity's work around the world!
