But first, what is #GivingTuesday all about and how can you GIVE, you ask? It’s a day dedicated to inspiring individual giving across the country-- an antidote to consumer excess, following Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It's a chance for people to let their social media networks know which organizations they support-- and why! Now in its third year, #GivingTuesday is an opportunity for anyone, anywhere to get in the spirit of giving and support deserving nonprofits.
Liberty Hill loves #Giving Tuesday! It's a global version of what we do here in L.A.-- organizing money and organizing people to have an impact! Liberty Hill's message: On Giving Tuesday, Think Local! With one donation to Liberty Hill, you support more than 35 of the most effective social justice organizations in Los Angeles.
Each year, support for #GivingTuesday grows, as more people give back in better, smarter ways. Last year, online giving on #GivingTuesday nearly doubled contributions made in 2012, and the average online gift was $142.05, compared to $101.60 the previous year.
Liberty Hill Foundation makes it possible for anyone to be a philanthropist on #GivingTuesday - or any other day! Our Giving Tuesday Toolkit Page goes live Thursday, Nov. 20. For the week leading up to #Giving Tuesday, we're providing tips and tools to support Liberty Hill's Push for Power each day.
