Tomorrow is #GivingTuesdayNow!

“Let’s come together today to stand in unity + use our individual power of generosity to remain connected and heal.

As more people suffer, we’ve seen a surge in global kindness and people taking proactive steps to generate solutions for all. From grocery shopping for the elderly to delivering meals or offering free classes online, acts of kindness during the coronavirus pandemic are providing uplifting moments of joy in a world beset by anxiety.

These stories of giving have been surfacing around the world. And as these small actions repeat – and scale – we see a habit of daily kindness emerging globally.

As we get ready for #GivingTuesdayNow, we find hope in these stories of audacious generosity. As our colleagues at Weaving Community put it (see their great toolkit below), we can either give in to fear or we can find meaning in helping others. It’s in these small acts of bravery that we’re going to put the world back together, not the way it was, but the way we want it to be.

Yours in solidarity,” The GivingTuesday Team
