With the holidays rapidly approaching, the season for giving has begun. Everyone is familiar with Black Friday and Cyber Monday. However, how many know what Giving Tuesday is? It is a movement to create a national day of giving. Giving Tuesday is the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, and this year occurs on Tuesday, December 3rd.
In 2012, Giving Tuesday was started by the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation. A large number of organizations, including Google, Microsoft, Skype, Cisco, UNICEF, the Case Foundation, as well as others have joined as partners.
In the spirit of the season, Advocates for Children will once again join the #GivingTuesday celebration on December 3rd, inspiring meaningful giving to advance its mission of the prevention and treatment of child abuse in all its forms.
Coinciding with Thanksgiving and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday was designed to inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the nonprofits and causes they support, and help create a better world. This is not the first year that Advocates for Children has participated in the annual event that always occurs the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
