Created in 2012, Giving Tuesday is all about offering a gift to someone else, in times of need — or simply out of the kindness of one’s heart. That giving can be the shine of a smile or an act of generosity that brightens up someone else’s day.
This year, Giving Tuesday is slated for December 1st 2020. But with four Tuesdays remaining in the year, why not keep the positive momentum going?
‘Tis the season, as they say! The season of joy, hope, giving and gifts. Of course, like many nonprofit leaders, John Seckel knows all too well that those four words are anything but random. Rather, these are the pillars of what the holiday season is all about! Giving Tuesday isn’t always about giving and receiving physical gifts. While nonprofit organizations often turn to the event to ask supporters for donations and gifts, charities are often known to use this day as an opportunity to start a movement. This year, Seckel and his team at the Seckel Foundation urge fellow nonprofits to keep this idea in mind. Instead of focusing on donations, use the remaining Tuesdays of 2020 to act out your message or cause in a way that ‘gifts’ something to your community. You’d be surprised what this could blossom into.. It all starts with one act of kindness!
