On December 2, 2014, #GivingTuesday harnesses the power of social media
to create a national movement around the holidays dedicated to giving,
similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are,
today, synonymous with holiday shopping. #GivingTuesday is a day for everyone,
everywhere, to GIVE!
This year’s project will benefit The Children’s Center by
providing them a Friendship Bench from Tiny Girl, Big Dream, Inc. which
promotes character development and spreads the message of kindness and
empathy to children. The founder, a 12-year-old little girl, believes
that if we can begin to put the spotlight on all of the goodness, random
acts of kindness, and yes, friendship, then we will begin to see a brighter
more vibrant world. She founded the company in 2012 with a goal of placing
friendship kits into every school across the United States and through
kindness and friendship push bullying and violence out of our schools
We’re also asking social media followers to share what they’re
doing on this international day of giving by taking an #UNselfie (photo
of a person volunteering, or stating how they get involved with their
community) and posting on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Connect with
us and join the giving movement!
