New York, NY, November 20, 2023 –(PR.com)– GivingTuesday, the organization that powers the global generosity movement, announced today a preview of the campaigns and events planned for the annual celebration on November 28, 2023.
Across the globe, millions of people will engage in acts of generosity by giving their voice, time, money, or goods to support the communities and causes they care about. GivingTuesday country movements drive generosity year-round in nearly 100 countries, and creative and innovative GivingTuesday events, drives, campaigns, and other activations take place annually in every corner of the world.
“This GivingTuesday promises to be a beacon of hope, uniting communities, organizations, and individuals through a shared commitment to positive impact,” said Asha Curran, GivingTuesday’s Chief Executive Officer. “That’s what moves me most every year on this annual celebration of giving, especially during challenging times. For a full day, people from different places, backgrounds, and cultures are a part of a global wave of generosity made possible only because each of them asked themselves, ‘what good can I do today?’ I’m hopeful that the connection and collective action we see on GivingTuesday inspires all of us to center generosity every day in every way we can, everywhere we can for the year ahead.”
The previous annual GivingTuesday celebration, November 29, 2022, generated $3.1 billion in donations, just in the United States alone, and inspired millions of people worldwide to volunteer, perform acts of kindness, and donate their voices, time, money, and goods.
Some of the countless initiatives planned for GivingTuesday 2023 include:
– “Infectious Generosity,” a special evening presented by TED and GivingTuesday on November 28, will explore a crucial reframing of the most important value humans have ever embraced. There will be new TED talks from Chris Anderson, Head of TED, and Asha Curran, CEO of GivingTuesday, plus quick check-ins from changemakers around the world. Anderson’s new book, Infectious Generosity, will also be launched ahead of its January publication.
– Give As We Grow, a fun, free game for primary school-aged children and families that was developed to be a resource for raising kind, caring, and generous kids, will be launched by GivingTuesday, National Center for Family Philanthropy, and Phillips Foundation.
– Nearly 100 GivingTuesday country movements will organize their networks to promote generosity through national campaigns and local activities. Hundreds of GivingTuesday community campaigns will also activate their communities to engage in acts of generosity and raise critical funds for local organizations.
– The GivingTuesdaySpark Global Youth Challenge will feature young leaders rallying youth around the world to join them in acts of generosity for November 28. The challenge includes family-friendly video tutorials that demonstrate how anyone, anywhere can give back through simple projects.
– The GivingTuesday Data Commons will work with its network of technology, platform, and academic partners to track giving on the day and offer analysis and insights on a full range of giving trends spanning the full year.
Nonprofits, brands, and individuals all over the world have designed their own campaigns to inspire generosity for their causes, cultures, and communities in ways that best reflect their needs.
Additional community-wide activations and coalition and country movements will be announced ahead of November 28. Visit www.GivingTuesday.org for more examples and ideas for ways to give back as part of the day’s events, or follow the #GivingTuesday hashtag on social media.
