What Is #GivingTuesday?

 

#GivingTuesday began in 2012. Since then, it has grown into a powerful movement that encourages and supports generosity and selflessness through the giving of time, money, and resources. Immediately following Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday offers people the opportunity to give back to something or someone they believe in and support after a full weekend of self-indulgence. #GivingTuesday offers the opportunity for cities, states, nations, and the world to become self-less for one day of the year.

 

#GivingTuesday couples social media and people’s generosity to bring about powerful change in their local communities. It also brings together the collective power of people and entities such as — nonprofits, businesses, organizations, and corporations as well as families and individuals in a very big way.

 

Local nonprofits and organizations such as Tennessee Wesleyan University and Bryan College have participated in #GivingTuesday within the last three years. There are opportunities around every corner for you as an individual, family, or business to give back to causes and organizations that you believe in. Whether it’s your time, your monetary resources, or your prayers, Christ’s Legacy Academy appreciates and welcomes all. Stay tuned for campus needs, individual classroom needs, and for ways that you as a parent, grandparent, or community member can leave a legacy at Christ’s Legacy Academy during this year’s #GivingTuesday.
