Everyone has heard of Black Friday, and most people have heard of Cyber Monday, but have you heard of #GivingTuesday?
More than 45,000 organizations participated last year in 71 different countries to celebrate this global day dedicated to giving. #GivingTuesday is focused on encouraging people to give more, give smarter and give great. The best part is that anyone can get involved.
You don’t have to be a millionaire in order to donate this #GivingTuesday. The initiative is geared towards allowing ordinary people to come together to do extraordinary things. That means every penny counts.
Start planning for #GivingTuesday today. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Cut one coffee or lunch/dinner purchase each week. Put that money aside to grow your #GivingTuesday donation.
- Use the hashtag #GivingTuesday on social media to get the word out about the big day. Share your story, how you will be participating and why.
- Keep #GivingTuesday at the forefront of your mind as the holidays draw near. Try to grow your giving spirit rather than your spending spirit.
- Set personal spending limits for Black Friday and Cyber Monday to ensure your giving capabilities for #GivingTuesday
The Call KC is setting the bar high with a goal to raise over $10,000. This November 29, 2016 Kansas City has the opportunity to ban together and make a huge change in 24 hours. Find a way to be a part of #GivingTuesday this year.
Keep a look out for our blog next week where we give you a clear outline of what your donation will go to when you give to The Call KC. We’re excited to rally together for good this holiday season.
