We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
It’s a simple idea. 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. #GivingTuesday was founded in 2012 by New York’s 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation. Together, with a team of influencers and founding partners, they launched a global movement that has engaged more than 10,000 organizations worldwide.
At Nourish, #GivingTuesday can mean many things. All year long, our national office staff and dedicated team of students give back to communities — both the ones we partner with abroad, and the ones right here at home. Whether it’s hosting a Hunger Lunch and donating the leftover food to a neighborhood food bank, volunteering at the local animal shelter, donating to causes we care about, or coaching a youth sports team, the Nourish team seeks to redefine giving every day of the year. We are thrilled that there is now a dedicated day to giving back, and we hope that you will think about ways you can make an impact, both locally and globally. As December 2 nears, we’ll let you know how you can give back to Nourish specifically. In any way you see fit, join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity!
