Join Girls on the Run in Celebrating #GivingTuesday!

By Suzanna McCloskey on 11/15/2015 | Announcements

Now in its fourth year, #GivingTuesday brings together networks of people, corporations, small businesses and nonprofits to celebrate giving and encourage more, better and smarter charitable giving during the holidays. On December 1, Girls on the Run invites you to celebrate Giving Tuesday with our #GiveGOTR campaign!

What is #GivingTuesday?

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season. Created by 92nd Street Y—a cultural center in New York City —#GivingTuesday is a global movement that connects diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.

There are many ways to celebrate #GivingTuesday with Girls on the Run on December 1!
