Today is the day! Huge congrats to Henry Timms, Aaron Sherinian and the whole #GivingTuesday team around the world for transforming a small but powerful idea into a global phenomenon of giving.
#GivingTuesday is a dedicated day of giving as a counterpoint to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The idea behind #GivingTuesday is to give back to an organization that is making a difference as well as inspiring others to do the same. You can find all the details at GivingTuesday.org where partners and non-profits work together to give everyone the chance to contribute to causes they care about.
As part of the big day, I had the pleasure of joining Chrysula Winegar (@chrysula) from the UN Foundation, Ritu Sharma (@ritusharma1) from Social Media for Non-Profits, and Geof Rochester (@geof1r @nature_org) from the Nature Conservancy to discuss the latest, best practices in ‘Philanthropy through Digital Media’. So we wanted to share those insights with you.
Once again, please visit the GivingTuesday.org site and give to something you care about – together we can make a mighty difference in one day and over time slowly change the way we think about our role in the world.
