The holidays are the perfect time to focus on giving, and there is no better way to give to the people who need it the most than by participating in the global day of giving, Giving Tuesday on December 1st. The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano needs your help in meeting our goal of funding 20,000 meals by Giving Tuesday!
Black Friday has been around for decades and Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday have become part of the general populations’ vernacular in recent years. But the newest kid on the block is #GivingTuesday and it has been working its ways up the ranks in popularity.
On the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, after the much-anticipated shopping days are over, we get to celebrate generosity, empathy and kindness with #GivingTuesday. Why the hashtag? Because you are encouraged to let others know how you are honoring this day of selflessness. The spirit of giving is contagious and the more people that discuss their efforts on social media, the more it encourages others to do the same. So share, tweet and post away on Tuesday, December 1st.
