JOIN US FOR #GIVINGTUESDAY
Dear World Relief Community,
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. World Relief is partnering in this global movement to raise awareness of the work we do and how important financial donations are to the sustainability of our programs and services.
WHEN IS #GIVINGTUESDAY?
#GivingTuesday is held annually the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, this year on November 28, 2017.
HOW CAN #GIVINGTUESDAY BENEFIT WORLD RELIEF?
#GivingTuesday can build on the strength of a global movement to increase exposure and build support for World Relief, especially during the holiday giving season. Just as the retail world has benefited from coordinating national shopping days across many brands and platforms, #GivingTuesday will do the same for giving.
This year, 2017, has been a hard year for organizations serving refugee and immigrant populations. Budget cuts in the Federal Refugee Resettlement program have increased the need to raise additional funds to support programs and initiatives serving the Refugee and Immigrant communities. #GivingTuesday gives us that opportunity on a larger platform.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Everyone! #GivingTuesday has been built by a broad coalition of partners, including individuals, families, nonprofits, schools, religious organizations, small businesses and corporations.
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO BE INVOLVED IN #GIVINGTUESDAY?
Interested in participating? It’s easy! We ask that partners use #GivingTuesday as an opportunity to celebrate and incentivize giving (e.g. donations, volunteerism, advocacy, acts of kindness) in our communities. Check out the ideas & examples section of this toolkit to see how you can engage with World Relief on this year’s #GivingTuesday.
