#GivingTuesday is coming!Posted on 20th November 2014 by Jo Ivens
It is 13 days until the first UK #GivingTuesday – a global day of giving. The simple idea behind #GivingTuesday is to encourage people, charities and businesses to donate time, money or their voice to help a good cause.
Here at Impetus we are planning to open our doors up to show everyone the wide range of things we do and what difference it means to our service users and volunteers. Look out for our tweets and Facebook posts showing snippets of our activities with photos, links, stories and more!
GivingTuesday (2nd December) is a global day of giving. After the sales of Black Friday and the online shopping boom on Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is an opportunity to come together to show the world why it’s good to give. Whether it’s making a donation, volunteering your time or just spreading the word at the start of the Christmas shopping season, #GivingTuesday is a call to action for everyone who wants to give something back.
We are excited to be involved in this campaign to use a national social media campaign to shine a light on the work we do locally, and ask you to be involved in helping us to make a difference. So look out for our posts on the day, and show your support by sharing with your friends and colleagues, signing up to volunteer, donate or just keep in touch with us!
