It’s the season of giving! And today is #GivingTuesday – the perfect day to give back to your community.
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving at the start of the holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support non-profit organizations.
#GivingTuesday first started in 2012 by New York’s 92nd St. Y and the United Nations Foundation. Over the last three years, it has grown into a massive event, with tens of millions of dollars raised by people from around the world!
Get involved and give back! Make a big impact in someone’s life by supporting one of the many great non-profits in our community. Need some ideas? Check out the Willamette Week’s Give! Guide, which highlights some of the best mission-driven non-profits in Portland.
