#GivingTuesday: November 29, 2016


#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by people who care about the world around them. This year the United Nations Foundation is celebrating #GivingTuesday by helping people connect to the humanity around them. It’s easy to get involved.

Find a way for your family, community, company, or organization to come together in ways to make a better world — then tell everyone how you are giving. Telling your #GivingTuesday story can help invite new friends, new ideas, and giving to the table. Join us and be a part of a global celebration and this new tradition of generosity. Be Human. Be Kind. Be You. Give.

#GivingTuesday isn’t just a day to donate to causes — it’s a day to share!
Now that you’ve donated to your favorite organizations, use social media to tell the world
about the issues that matter most to you. #GiveaGIF to your friends this giving season
and help inspire change around the world.


It’s simple! Just follow these steps.

On #GivingTuesday, the UN Foundation is raising awareness and funds for humanitarian issues and initiatives such as Girl Up, Shot@Life, UNA USA, Cookstoves, and Nothing But Nets. These campaigns help support the lifesaving work of the United Nations and its partners around the world.

Whether you’re giving to one campaign or all five of these initiatives, your generosity on #GivingTuesday will help people and the planet. We need your support. We value your voice. We can make a big difference when we give together. 

Girl Up: Help donate to support refugee girls education in Uganda.
This year your donations can give a girl school supplies, a uniform,
and a chance to go to school.

Nothing But Nets: Start a new holiday tradition this year — give gifts 
that give back and save lives through Gift a Net, which helps 
protect families from malaria. This year your gift will be tripled!

Shot@Life: This #GivingTuesday, get a flu shot or any other vaccine
at Walgreens and help provide children in need access to life-saving vaccines.

UNA USA: More than 65 million people have fled their homes and risked their lives
in search of refuge. This year help support education for refugee children
through the Adopt-A-Future campaign.

Cookstoves: Household air pollution caused by open fire cooking is a
top health and environmental concern. Help protect people and the
planet by supporting clean cookstoves this #GivingTuesday.

Look no further! Help kick off the gif-ing season with the first ever holiday GIF guide.
