AROUND THE WORLD
#GivingTuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving. A team of influencers and founding partners joined forces, collaborating across sectors, offering expertise and working tirelessly, to launch #GivingTuesday and have continued to shape, grow and strengthen the movement. Created by the team at the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact at the 92nd Street Y—a cultural center in New York City that, since 1874, has been bringing people together around the values of service and giving back. #GivingTuesday is entering its sixth year.
Around the world, people from 98 countries participated in #GivingTuesday in 2016. Global leaders of 30 countries are championing the movement. View Global Campaigns to see how the world celebrates giving.
Since 2009, India has been celebrating #DaanUtsav, its Joy of Giving week from Oct 2-8, starting with Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday. #DaanUtsav volunteers and GuideStar India have come together to anchor #GivingTuesdayIndia as an annual #DaanUtsav celebration, on the Tuesday between Oct 2 and 8. We are supported by philanthropists and donors who are making it possible to launch #GivingTuesday in India! There is no participation fee. Everyone can register for free, use our tool kits and resources to organise giving campaigns and events, use the #GivingTuesdayIndia logo, and spread the word using your social media and other channels! Just use the hashtags #GivingTuesdayIndia #DaanUtsav so that your giving adds to the movement! You can come up with interesting additional hashtags such as #GivingShoesDay to #GivingFoodDay.
A number of organisations and individuals are joining the movement by signing up on this portal, stating how they plan to give on October 3. You could have a one day giving programme on #GivingTuesdayIndia October 3 or a longer event, campaign or activity starting before #GivingTuesdayIndia and continuing beyond #DaanUtsav. However, you need to share in your registration form, what you specifically plan to do on October 3, track the giving on that specific day and report the impact.
