#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. On November 27, 2018 millions of people will come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.
We have two days for getting deals – Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On #GivingTuesday, we have a day for giving back. Together, people are creating a new ritual for our annual calendar. #GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season: a reminder of the “reason for the season.”
Every act of generosity counts, and each means even more when we give together. #GivingTuesday includes people of all ethnicities, religions and backgrounds. Together, millions of people demonstrate our common capacity to give.
#GivingTuesday is a celebration of America’s greatest traditions: generosity, entrepreneurialism, community. Everyone has something to give. You can give time or expertise, monetary donations large or small, simple acts of kindness, food or clothing.
More than 5,000 Franciscan missionaries serve the poorest of the poor in developing countries throughout the world. Your gift makes a real impact on all their lives. In this season of giving, please know that our worldwide Franciscan community prays daily for you and your loved ones. May you be blessed with the peace and joy of this Christmas season, and every day of the new year!
Together, we deliver hope.
