Giving Tuesday

What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is an annual international campaign that takes place on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and runs in 70 different countries around the world. This year it will be on 27th November.

Created as a counter-balance to the heavy retail push around Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is responsible for raising millions of pounds for charity in the UK each year. It’s a day where people donate, fundraise and raise awareness for their favourite charities to help in their vital work.
