“Everyone has something to give and every act of generosity counts” GivingTuesday
GivingTuesday can change the world – here at 365give, we so agree! Every act of giving, generosity and kindness moves us to a happier, healthier world. GivingTuesday reimagines a world built upon shared humanity and generosity. They have coined the term “radical generosity.” If we all practiced “radical generosity” for just one day – we would change everything!
What is GivingTuesday?
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of radical generosity around the world.
GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
GivingTuesday strives to build a world in which the catalytic power of generosity is at the heart of the society we build together, unlocking dignity, opportunity, and equity around the globe.
GivingTuesday’s global network collaborates year-round to inspire generosity around the world, with a common mission to build a world where generosity is part of everyday life.
Why Will Generosity Change the World?
We are often asked “how can one person change the world?” It’s simple math.
When you give you are a happier, healthier person. Your generous action changed whatever you touched (people, animals or the planet). Your personal happiness from giving ripples to your family, friends and beyond. Now you have changed not only yourself but everyone around you. The world will never be the same. The ripples of happiness and love keep spreading. Science proves it even affects the magnetic field of the planet! How cool is that?! Multiply the energetic power of doing good by 7 billion people and BOOM! Together we have changed everything IN JUST ONE DAY! Giving is really that simple.
