I asked Katie Nealon, GlobalGiving’s Network Manager, to explain the purpose of #GivingTuesday. She answered in under 30 seconds!
Q: What is #GivingTuesday?
A: #GivingTuesday is an international day of charitable giving. Each year, it happens right after Thanksgiving. Every year, #GivingTuesday gets bigger and bigger! Last year, GlobalGiving project partners raised over $2 million for amazing projects around the world.
Q: When does #GivingTuesday happen this year?
A: Mark your calendar for Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017.
Q: Why should companies get involved in #GivingTuesday?
A: Studies show philanthropy is good for your community and your bottom line. For example, bank employees who were given $50 to donate to a charity were happier and more satisfied with their jobs as compared to employees who did not donate. And consumers are willing to pay more for a product if it’s from a company with a commitment to social values, according to this Nielsen study.
