#GivingTuesday is Tuesday, November 28 this year. Created in 2012 as a day that “encourages people to do good”, it is now a global movement that has inspired millions of people for over ten years, encouraging intentional giving and generosity.
An awe inspiring $3.1B was given in 2022, a 15% increase over 2021 (and over 6,000 trees were planted). For more statistics, read the 2022 #GivingTuesday Impact Report.
