November 24, 2015 — There’s a day for giving thanks. There’s two days for getting deals. There’s a day for giving back! This year, #GivingTuesday is December 1st. Are you ready?
#GivingTuesday (now in its fourth year) is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and following the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many people focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
Will you join in this year? It’s easy! 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 this wonderful new tradition!
There are many ways to join the movement and give back on Tuesday, December 1, and at OpUSA, we’re making it easy for you! Read on to learn more about three easy ways YOU can support Operation USA this #GivingTuesday:
