Today is Giving Tuesday, the global day of giving that inspires millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. #GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a day that encourages people to do good and is celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
Last year’s Giving Tuesday campaign generated $2.47 billion in donations in the United States, a 25% increase from 2019. You can do more than just donate funds to your favorite charity. In 2020, 9.8 million people in the U.S. gave goods while 7.1 million volunteered. Wondering how else you can do good? Here are four ways to give on this year’s Giving Tuesday:
- Start an online fundraiser. If you want to encourage others to donate to a specific cause, start your own fundraiser! Check out your organization’s website to start a campaign that others can contribute to.
- Give to a local food bank. Visit your local food bank to donate non-perishable foods, household items such as paper towel and toilet paper, and baby items like diapers and formula.
- Volunteer in your local community. Rather donate your time instead of funds? Volunteer at your local animal shelter, soup kitchen, or another nonprofit organization! Your time is just as valuable as a monetary donation.
- Donate your car to charity. Donating your car is an easy way to support any organization. The funds from the sale of your vehicle will be returned to the charity of your choice. This is a great option if you’re looking to get rid of an old car and want to help others. Plus, you’ll receive a tax deduction!
