Giving Tuesday was created when two organizations, the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation came together in 2012, about a month before that year’s Thanksgiving.
Their intention was to set aside a day that was all about celebrating the generosity of giving, a great American tradition.
As a global movement to create an international day of giving at the beginning of the Christmas and Holiday Season, #GivingTuesday unites countries around the world by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.
While this is only the seventh annual Giving Tuesday, the movement continues to show exponential growth year over year. In 2017, Giving Tuesday raised more than 300 million dollars in donations – a 69% increase from the previous year.
What started as a day in the US, has quickly grown into a worldwide celebration of generosity and our shared capacity to give. There are currently over 50 countries participating, including South Africa.

All non-profits can use help, it is often a matter of matching what you can provide with what non-profits need. Think thoughtfully about what you have to give time wise and try your best to match it.
