Each year Black Friday and Cyber Monday generate billions of dollars in retail revenue in the U.S., officially kicking off the holiday shopping season. That’s why #GivingTuesday is hosting its third annual global day on Tuesday, December 2, to encourage bigger, better and smarter charitable giving during the holidays.
Dedicated to harnessing the power of social media and generosity of people around the world, #GivingTuesday is a worldwide movement that celebrates giving in all its forms. StumbleUpon is a proud partner of #GivingTuesday and will be leveraging our platforms to drive the mission and spirit of this great cause: anyone can support and charity or cause through any means – monetary donations, volunteerism or kind deeds.
Other partners and celebrities rallying behind the movement include CVS Health, Hugh Jackman’s Laughing Man Worldwide, Jessica Alba’s The Honest Company, The Ronald McDonald House and TOMS, among many more.
As part of the campaign, #GivingTuesday is inspiring people to show their support by posting an #UNselfie using #GivingTuesday, which is essentially a “selfie” explaining how or why you are giving this year.
