In case you’re not already aware, Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement that was created back in 2012 with a simple idea – designating a day that encourages people to do good. It has now grown into an enormous movement that has inspired hundreds of millions of people to make donations, collaborate with nonprofit organizations, and celebrate generosity.
While making a donation to your favorite nonprofit is an awesome idea (and we hope you’ll consider doing so!) there are also other ways to celebrate the day. Whether you help out a neighbor, bring attention to a cause or issue you care about, or simply smile at a stranger, there’s something everyone can do to make the world a better and brighter place.
