Background – What is #GivingTuesday?
Created by 92nd Street Y - a cultural center in New York City that, since 1874, has been bringing people together around the values of service and giving back - #GivingTuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving. A team of influencers and founding partners joined forces - collaborating across sectors, offering expertise and working tirelessly - to launch #GivingTuesday and have continued to shape, grow and strengthen the movement.
The Big Ideas Behind #GivingTuesday
#GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners - nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals - to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness.
