#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, November 28th, and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. –GivingTuesday.org
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will match donations made to nonprofits through Facebook on #GivingTuesday. The foundation will match up to $1,000 per fundraiser and will continue to match donations with a cap of $2 million.
1. Raise awareness! Even if you can’t donate this year, it’s likely someone you know can!
2. Donate to a #GivingTuesday fundraiser for Mona on Facebook. (One dollar donated = two dollars to Mona*)
