Every individual can contribute to building a better world through various acts of generosity. This #GivingTuesdaySA, Vukawanele encourages you to make your contributions count. Let’s make every Tuesday a Giving Tuesday.
#GivingTuesdaySA is part of a global generosity movement (#GivingTuesday) designed to encourage acts of kindness and meaningful contributions. Following the popular shopping holidays Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesdaySA kickstarts the charitable season, focusing on holiday and end-of-year giving. Join us on November 28, 2023, to amplify the power of generosity. Whether you’re an individual, part of a corporate team, or an NGO, there’s a way for you to contribute.
You don't have to be a philanthropist to make a meaningful impact. Small gestures count too. You could volunteer at a local shelter, donate food or essentials, or simply share social causes on your social media platforms. These actions, while minor, contribute to a larger, collective impact.
Companies often have resources that can make a significant difference. Beyond cash donations, consider launching a skill-sharing initiative where employees can offer their expertise to nonprofits. You could also opt for in-kind donations like offering free advertising space or products to charitable organisations.
Being part of #GivingTuesdaySA is an excellent opportunity for nonprofits to get creative with their fundraising campaigns. Use storytelling to make your cause relatable and inspire potential donors. Hosting virtual events or social media challenges can also generate buzz and engagement around your organisation's mission.
#GivingEveryTuesday is a series of weekly opportunities to come together to give, volunteer, and show kindness in shared moments with communities, causes, and countries around the world. Developed by the GivingTuesday leader community, #GivingEveryTuesday offers opportunities to increase civic participation, drive giving, and build connection and empathy.
