WHAT IS #GIVINGTUESDAY?
#GivingTuesday has become a global movement of giving back and encouraging philanthropy. It began in 2012 as a response to the consumerism of the post-Thanksgiving season in Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Since 2012, more than $300 million has been raised to support charitable causes.
Join us in honoring this year’s CFC theme and Go Green! Here are some ways that you can participate in #GivingTuesday:
- Wear green on #GivingTuesday to show support for the spirit of giving. Consider wearing a green shirt, tie, jewelry, or have a little more fun with a St. Patrick’s Day hat!
- Make a CFC contribution to your favorite charities via payroll deduction or with a one-time gift through the online giving portal. Together, we can make this the highest pledging day in CFC history!
- Post the #GivingTuesday Donor Card near your desk to encourage others in your office to make their CFC pledge too.
- Share why charitable giving is important to you on social media using #ShowSomeLoveCFC. Add a photo of your green outfit or our #GivingTuesday graphic.
