Join a global holiday and spread the joy generously
We’ve got lots of holidays during the year—days for thanking, for shopping, for tricking and for treating. So why not one more day, this time for giving? Not just to those we know, but to everyone. That’s the idea behind #GivingTuesday.
#GivingTuesday is a hashtag, but it’s also a new movement toward a more generous holiday season. The date is Tuesday, Dec. 1, and the goal is to spread as much love as you can. Whether it’s with your family, your community, or even your office, everybody should find a way they can give back.
Better yet, Causeway and United Way of Greater Chattanooga are starting a locally focused arm of the holiday under the hashtag #CHAgives. Visit chagives.org for a handy list of local charities and nonprofits that could use your help this holiday season, as well as suggestions for what you can donate.
Then, when you’ve picked out the places you want to help support, take to social media sites and use the hashtags #GivingTuesday and #CHAgives to explain why you’re giving, and why others should too. If everyone does their part, we can make a big difference on just one little day.
