In May 2014 the UK became the latest country to join the #GivingTuesday movement GivingTuesdayUK
#GivingTuesday started in the The United States in 2012 as an antidote to the start of the festive shopping season, which is kicked off by Black Friday sales and Cyber Monday shopping online.
More and more companies are bringing the Black Friday sales and the Cyber Monday online shopping spree to these shores. Shopping’s great, but #GivingTuesday is a remedy to the pressures of Christmas spending and gives an opportunity to help the causes we all care about.
This idea is now spreading across the world. Canada, Australia, Singapore, Mexico, Latin America and Israel all now join in on this day to put a huge, global spotlight on giving.
