Giving Tuesday Ideas:

Take an #unselfie---a show of support for #Giving Tuesday.  Take a picture, tag it #unselfie and #givingtuesday and upload it to your social media accounts

Peruse your favorite nonprofit websites on Giving Tuesday.  Many of them are participating in this special day of awareness and offering creative ways to be supportive.

Have a discussion during the weeks leading up to holidays with your family and friends about changing the gift giving traditions in your family doing something with a charitable aspect!  You might be surprised at the enthusiastic response! Encourage them to give on #GivingTuesday

Ask your volunteers to invite 3 family members or friends to donate and post about their donation on social media.  Remind them to mention the organization and use #GT or #GivingTuesday in their social media posts.

Consider adding “Live Giving” stations (i.e., coffee shop, gym, the street): Bring a laptop somewhere and engage with people there; ask them to donate on the spot, in-person!
