Background: It seems the holiday season begins earlier every year, but the frenzy of shopping truly launches the day after Thanksgiving, commonly known as #BlackFriday. As more and more people began to turn to online shopping, #CyberMonday emerged too. Although all this shopping is done in the name of giving gifts to loved ones, it sometimes feels like the goodwill of the holiday season fades into the background. In 2012, a few nonprofit professionals decided to do something about it and raised over $10 million in the inaugural event. But Giving Tuesday was just getting started. By 2016, the giving day raised over $177 million online.
- What: A global day of giving
- When: The Tuesday following Black Friday
- Where: Everywhere. Organizations all over the world participate
The biggest giving month of the year is right around the corner. In fact, about a third of all charitable giving happens in December. Please help us successfully kick off the holiday giving season by promoting the #GivingTuesday campaign on November 28, 2017 in support of the ACDA.
