In 2012, Giving Tuesday started as a simple way to encourage people everywhere—and make it easier for them—to do good by donating time, expertise or money to causes they were passionate about. Now, Giving Tuesday has become a global phenomenon. Inspiring people in communities around the world to help. In any way they can. You were inspired. And we were inspired. So this December we’re making every Tuesday a Giving Tuesday. We’re inviting everyone to consider how much they can help someone in their community or halfway around the world. And to think of every Tuesday as a special day to make life better, anywhere, for others.
