It’s finally here. All the long hours of work, all the crazy fundraising ideas, the many brain-storming and staff-engagement sessions all come down to this – the global day of giving.
Giving Tuesday would not exist except for the efforts of all of our amazing partners and so we want to let you all know some of the big activities that are happening in real life and on social media this Giving Tuesday.
The BT Tower in London will be showing Giving Tuesday messaging on the day – sharing the message far and wide.
Radley will be releasing a Giving Tuesday dog walking bag with a portion of the proceeds going to the Dogs Trust. This partnership has raised £50,000 for the Dogs Trust since 2016.
Thomson Reuters will be showing a Giving Tuesday video on their Jumbatron in Canary Wharf (24th until 29th November) – making your work commute just a little nicer.
RBS will be matching their staff payroll giving and promoting Giving Tuesday to over 1.5 million MyReward customers. Last year RBS created an additional £470,000 of funding for the charities and good causes that their employees and customers care about on Giving Tuesday.
PayPal will be matching funds, through their PayPal Giving Fund, up to a total of £50,000 on the day. Match-funding can make an incredible impact, especially on smaller charities.
ASOS are using their social media prowess to talk about the work of the ASOS Foundation and will also be hosting an event at ASOS Head Office at Greater London House in Camden to raise awareness of youth homelessness and the work the ASOS Foundation are doing with its charity partner Centrepoint to combat the issue.
