Preparing for #GivingTuesday

GivingTuesday is a global celebration of generosity: a dedicated day of the year when people donate their time, goods, or dollars, or the power of their voice to charities, causes and community groups.

GivingTuesday originated in the US in 2012 when two organisations - the United Nations Foundation and the 92nd Street Y community centre in New York City - sought an antidote to the consumerism of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.

Seven years later, GivingTuesday has reached more than 50 countries, from Liberia to Mexico. In 2019, China, Germany and Somalia will join in for the first time, and Australia is gearing up for its biggest ever celebrations nationwide, on 3 December.

The aim of the GivingTuesday movement is to spread generosity and make giving go viral. We want to inspire Australians - who are renowned for stepping up to help each other out - to join in.

How can you get involved?
