#GIVINGTUESDAY

In May 2014 the UK became the latest country to join the #GivingTuesday movement. We want to show the world how generous the UK public are and we’re confident that the campaign will be a big success!

#GivingTuesday started in the The United States in 2012 as an antidote to the start of the festive shopping season, which is kicked off by Black Friday sales and Cyber Monday shopping online.

More and more companies are bringing the Black Friday sales and the Cyber Monday online shopping spree to these shores. Shopping's great, but #GivingTuesday is a remedy to the pressures of Christmas spending and gives an opportunity to help the causes we all care about.

This idea is now spreading across the world. Canada, Australia, Singapore, Mexico, Latin America and Israel all now join in on this day to put a huge, global spotlight on giving.

#GivingTuesday in the UK

In the UK, the campaign is coordinated by The Charities Aid Foundation and Blackbaud.  We are helping to coordinate this campaign by providing resources and tools, putting people in touch with each other, and leading the conversation on Twitter, Facebook and everywhere else we can find to talk about it.

But the campaign is powered by and belongs to you.
