10 Things You Can Do to Get Involved on #GivingTuesday

Tomorrow is the day we’ve all been waiting for – Giving Tuesday 2017!

For those of you who haven’t heard us talk about #GivingTuesday, let’s get you caught up:

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving following the two major “shopping holidays” of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

#GivingTuesday is a prime opportunity to encourage your employees and customers to refocus on what the holiday season really means; spending time with the people who matter to us, expressing gratitude for all our blessings, and (of course) giving back.

There are many ways to join in the #GivingTuesday fun including volunteering your time, participating in community events or giving to your favorite causes. In fact, #GivingTuesday raised over $177 million dollars from over 98 countries last year alone.

Here are 10 things you can do to participate in #GivingTuesday

  1. Volunteer at your favorite charity. Search for local happenings here.
  2. Clean out that closet (we know you’ve been meaning to) and bring those clothes down to the local Salvation Army
  3. Donate money to your causes. Sign-up for a DoTopia account today and you can give to multiple organizations.
  4. Write a note to your local representative. Share your voice!
  5. Spread the joy of giving with a random act of kindness.
  6. Encourage your company to raise money for a specific cause or run a #GivingTuesday campaign.
  7. Share a heartfelt post on social media about your favorite organization and why they matter to you. Encourage others to do the same.
  8. Use your skills to help nonprofits with their campaigns. You can search for pro bono opportunities on Taproot+ or reach out to you local nonprofits to see how you can use your talents to good.
  9. Talk to your management about how your organization can make giving back part of its official policy.
  10. Join in DoTopia’s #GiveDoDollars contest on Twitter for an opportunity to win $100 to give to a charity of your choice. All you need to do is tweet us what organization you would give $100 charity dollars to and why. Make sure to #GiveDoDollars to be eligible!

The crew at DoTopia is excited to be volunteering their time at Second Harvest Heartland tomorrow.

P.S. It’s not too late… #GivingTuesday is the official kick-off to Giving Season. Let us help your organization establish your own Workplace Giving or Cause Marketing campaign today by requesting a demo on our main page.
