Today is #givingtuesday – it is the global day of giving that sees people across the world unite to ‘do good stuff’ for charity.
What is #givingtuesday?
#givingtuesday was started in the U.S as a campaign to allow people to give something back after the shopping holidays of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It was brought to the UK three years ago by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) and is an opportunity for people across the country to do good stuff for charity – whether it’s making a donation, volunteering, or supporting a campaign.
Last year it raised £6,000 a minute for UK charities and broke the world record for the most amount of money donated online to charity in 24 hours.
