In May 2014 the UK became the latest country to join the #GivingTuesday movement. We wanted to show the world how generous the UK public were and we are delighted that the campaign has been such a big success!
#GivingTuesday started in the The United States in 2012.
It began as an antidote to Black Friday Cyber Monday, two of the world's biggest shopping days. The day is an opportunity for people around the world to come together to celebrate giving.
This idea has now spread across the world. Over 70 countries take part in the day including Canada, Australia, USA, Germany and many more!
In the UK, the campaign is coordinated by The Charities Aid Foundation. We are helping to coordinate this campaign by providing resources and tools, putting people in touch with each other, and leading the conversation on Twitter, Facebook and everywhere else we can find to talk about it.
But the campaign is powered by and belongs to you.
