Giving is good for the soul. Whether you give your time, your energy or you money - it helps us grow a more compassionate society. Giving Tuesday on 28th November is a day for you to connect with a cause that you are about. It's hard to know which charity does what and where the money goes. We can help you with that!
"I've always cared about the enviornment. As a little kid, I picked up litter as a volunteer. Sustainability is so important to me, there's so much unethical waste in the world. I want my kids to grow up in the same clean environment that I did. That's why I donate to charity."
"No matter your race, gender identity, sexual orientation… we're all human and we deserve to be treated the same. I give to charity because one day I hope we can all be truly equal. I give to charity by sponsoring a child through World Vision. It's all our responsibility to help those in need."
"If you have the means to make a difference, why wouldn't you? When I began my startup, I wasn't even paying myself a wage. It took me 10 years to get to a point where I could afford to donate to charity. If everyone was just a bit more compassionate, we could really change lives for the better."
