How charities took part in #GivingTuesdayNow

Giving Tuesday is an annual day of giving, which takes place after the consumer excess of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This year, as a response to Coronavirus, they launched #GivingTuesdayNow – a global day of unity “where we can all come together to recognise, celebrate and give thanks for the incredible outpouring of compassion we have witnessed during this crisis.” It took place on Tuesday 5 May and trended all day on Twitter.

Six ways your company can get involved in #GivingTuesday

What’s Giving Tuesday, I hear you ask? Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving and takes place on Tuesday 27th November. It follows after Black Friday and Cyber Monday to counteract the consumerism of those two days. It’s about making one day count by giving time or money to good causes and it’s really easy to get your company involved. Last year it raised over $300 million globally! In the UK it always trends all day long on Twitter and this year over 2,000 charities have signed up to take part. So how can you get involved?
