Two little letters can mean so much.
Redistribute. repurpose, reshape. Re-envision, renew, restore.
The third annual #GivingTuesday will take place on December 2, 2014, an opportunity to set aside a few dollars that would normally be spent on that Venti Latte or [insert your favorite splurge here] and instead redistribute those funds to your favorite organizations. The money that you repurpose can be reshaped and re-envisioned into something that renews – and restores – your community.
Thanksgiving Day kicks off a weekend of personal spending: Black Friday. Small Business Saturday. Cyber Monday. After an entire weekend devoted to holiday shopping and penny-pinching sales, #GivingTuesday motivates us to re-center, reconsider, refocus, and reboot.
#GivingTuesday inspires personal giving and encourages focused, thoughtful giving throughout the holidays. If Black Friday is the kick-off for holiday shopping and the biggest spending day of the year, then we should aim to make #GivingTuesday the kick-off of a beautiful season of charitable giving.
And we get it. Bills are tight. Holiday shopping is calling. That paycheck just doesn't stretch as far as we'd like.
That's why #GivingTuesday isn't just about monetary giving. This year its campaign is focused on the #UNselfie. GivingTuesday.org is encouraging people like you to take an #UNselfie showing how and why they are going to give back.
Give because you can.
Give because you care.
