One holiday that many people do not know about is Giving Tuesday. Although it is fairly new, Giving Tuesday has seen truly incredible growth over the last several years. In 2017, it is estimated that nearly $275 million dollars was donated. For 2022, it is predicted that over $3 billion (with a “B”) will be donated.
Giving Tuesday is a global initiative that encourages people and organizations to donate their time and money to charities. It began in 2012 as an idea that would encourage people to do good after major retail holidays. Today, it is a global movement that inspires people to give, come together and promote generosity.
Our Dallas Media Group team wants to share five ways you can give back to your community this Giving Tuesday, as well as list some cool nonprofits we currently support.
Five ways to give back on Giving Tuesday
Did you know that there are over 100 ways to give back on Giving Tuesday? Most of them do not include giving money. We have highlighted the top five ways to participate in Giving Tuesday this year.
Give your support
One of the best ways to participate in Giving Tuesday is to find a nonprofit to support. There are over 1.5 million nonprofit organizations in the United States. You can find one that supports a cause you or your company is passionate about.
Give your time
Nonprofits are always in need of volunteers that can help them complete their mission. Check your favorite nonprofit’s website to see if they have a sign-up sheet, or keep an eye out for any posts they might make on social media.
Give your money
Donations of any kind help nonprofits continue their mission. Some nonprofits are not always looking for monetary donations. They might need item donations. Also, check out to see if nonprofits have donation programs where you can make regular monthly donations.
Give your skills
Do you have a unique skill that can help a nonprofit? Consider sharing that skill with a nonprofit. For example, you can help them design flyers or bake some cookies for a bake sale.
Give your voice
Sometimes one of the best ways to support a nonprofit is by simply sharing its mission. Tell a friend or family member about a nonprofit. Whenever possible, reshare a post across your social media platforms. It is an easy way to show your support and spread awareness for a good cause.
