GivingTuesday, the global generosity movement, offers a glimpse into the upcoming annual celebration on November 28, 2023, spotlighting India’s #BornGenerous campaign that shines a light on the natural generosity ingrained in Indian culture, where people express kindness and generosity daily in multifaceted ways.
This year’s GivingTuesday embodies the collective strength of millions worldwide, emphasizing diverse acts of generosity in India, ranging from contributing time, talent, treasure (money and items), to sharing inspiring stories and testimonials that reflect the innate generosity of Indians.
“Ahead of this year’s GivingTuesday, we’re inspired by India’s #BornGenerous campaign, showcasing the everyday acts of kindness ingrained in Indian society,” remarked Asha Curran, CEO of GivingTuesday. “In a global celebration of giving, people from varied backgrounds and cultures collectively channel their generosity, reflecting on the question, ‘What good can I do today?’ It’s heartening to witness this unity and action. We hope that the spirit of GivingTuesday inspires a year-long commitment to fostering generosity in every possible way.”
Last year’s GivingTuesday, on November 29, 2022, spurred donations of $3.1 billion in the United States alone and motivated global volunteering and acts of kindness.
