What is it

How does it work?

We want you to do good stuff for your favourite charity or cause on #givingtuesday.

Here’s how it works: on the day you can choose to support any charity you want in any way you want. You can choose one of our partners to support, or you can pick a totally different organisation – it’s up to you.

You choose how you want to support them. Whether you bake good stuff, make good stuff, donate good stuff, tweet good stuff or even say good stuff ‐ how you support your favourite cause is totally up to you!

You’ll be joining some of Britain’s biggest brands, charities and celebrities, as well as thousands of people in the UK all doing good stuff for charity.

Sign up and commit to doing good stuff now!

Kim

Kim Roberts

Kim grew up in North Wales before travelling to America for university. After moving back to the UK she started her career working in politics – first for a political conferencing company, then later at the House of Commons. She’s also worked as a waitress and as a tennis coach but she wasn’t very good at either of those things.

Kim joined the #givingtuesday team in 2015 and now runs the campaign in the UK. She’s also part of the Charities Aid Foundation’s campaigns team where she works on various campaigns to encourage people to support charities.

When she’s not at work Kim can usually be found on the tennis court or watching an obscure documentary about British history.

Kim is currently on maternity leave, but will return to her role as project lead next year.

Hannah

Hannah Iqbal

Hannah is the Social Media Manager at Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) and is in charge of running social media for #givingtuesday. Hannah is also responsible for supporting the Marketing and Communications team by helping them promote their campaigns.

Previously, Hannah worked at the City of London Police for eight years. She initially joined as a Police Community Support Officer but later moved to the Communications Department where she eventually managed the force’s social media entity and increased the force’s main Twitter account by 80,000 followers over a three year period. She also trained several officers of all ranks on how to use Twitter and created additional accounts for the dogs unit amongst others!

A poster of Hannah in her Special Constable uniform was plastered across the City of London on phone boxes, building sites and on the tube as part of a crime prevention initiative. Let’s just say, many people got to take a selfie with her.
