Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving, a day to something for charities.
There are many ways that you can give back to charities in support of the work that they do – and they don’t all have to involve giving money.
- You could give your time – volunteer, or donate your services to help out a charity
- Think about donating something – blankets, coats and warm clothing to a homeless charity for example
- When buying gifts for Christmas think about charity gifts – many people appreciate the gesture of a gift that will help others purchased on their behalf
- Campaign for something – become a campaigner in support of a charitable cause
- Support your favourite charity, or find a new charity supporting a cause close to your heart. To find out more about supporting Step One click here. Here is a charity search by the Charities Aid Foundation
- Buy some items for your local food bank. Most supermarkets have collection points for donations to food banks so just buy an extra item or two with your regular shopping
- Find a campaign that you wish to support and write to your MP. Here is a campaign by the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) to ask for more to be done to ‘Flatten the Mental Health Curve’
- If you are buying Christmas Cards this year, why not buy Christmas cards in support of your chosen cause, or cards that are sold by a charity
- Spread the word! Talk to your friends and family about Giving Tuesday and the importance of supporting charities. Spread the word on social media using #GivingTuesday
