“Giving Tuesday” was first coined in 2012, by the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact at the 92nd Street Y, aiming to connect “diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.”
Every year, on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday re-directs us from shopping to giving, kicking off the charitable season, when many start thinking about holiday and end-of-year giving.
We at the Forward are proud to be part of this initiative. As a non-profit media organization, we rely on readers’ support to continue doing our independent journalism.
Join us on this global day of giving, fueled by the power of social media, by ensuring that our work — telling the Jewish community’s stories — goes on.
