A GLOBAL DAY OF GIVING
Officially celebrated in 42 countries, with people from over 150 nations participating, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving. First conceived of in the US in 2012 to balance the post-Thanksgiving excesses of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the movement is fuelled by the power of social media and collaboration. The goal is to encourage charitable giving, and to raise both funds and awareness for important causes. Last year, an astounding $300 million was raised in the US alone in just one day of giving.
#GivingTuesdayIndia is celebrated every year on the Tuesday of #DaanUtsav - our very own week-long festival of giving (2 – 8 Oct), and is powered by GuideStar
India – India’s most reliable NGO information repository with over 8500 NGOs.
