Help Others On “Giving Tuesday”

#givingtuesday (Nov 28, 2017) is a global day of action aimed at getting people thinking about others during Christmas…

An antidote to the Christmas sales, it takes place on the first Tuesday after Black Friday and encourages people to do good stuff for others. That could be donating money to charity, volunteering in your community, or something as simple as offering to help a friend or neighbour.

A global phenomenon, #givingtuesday has broken successive world records for the most donations made online, and last year over 1,600 charities and organisations took park.

The campaign has been supported by prominent figures including Stephen Fry, JK Rowling, Richard Branson and Cara Delivigne – and hopefully you can help, too.
