#givingtuesday 2017 success – thank you!

Thank you to all our amazing partners who made yesterday a huge success. #givingtuesday is bigger and better each year, and we’re incredibly grateful to all our partners  who did such a great job in encouraging people across the UK to do good stuff.

As ever, #givingtuesday dominated social media, becoming the top trend on Twitter in the UK from 8.30am and staying there for most of the day.

The country’s biggest topic of conversation saw a number of celebrities using their platforms to promote the causes that they care about. Household names to join in the discussion around #givingtuesday included Ricky Gervais, David Tennant and Martin Lewis.

We’ll be spending the next few hours catching our breath, and trying to work out just what a difference #givingtuesday 2017 will make. If you’ve got any numbers or case stories to tell us about, or just wanted to let us know how you got on yesterday, please do get in touch via campaigns@cafonline.org

Once again, thank you for all your help in making #givingtuesday 2017 such a success.
