Childhope Announces Plans to Participate in This Year’s #GivingTuesday Movement

On November 28, 2023, Childhope Philippines Foundation will be participating in this year’s Giving Tuesday event. This worldwide movement is a Global Day of Generosity, which Childhope sincerely believes is an excellent opportunity to come together and make a meaningful impact on the lives of street children.

As the organization calls on volunteers and supporters of this noble cause, #GivingTuesday aims to encourage people across the globe to give back to their communities.

What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is a global movement that occurs on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving celebration in the United States. Established in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation, this movement was created in hopes to encourage people to give back to their communities and support charitable causes. This is all the more important since, given its date usually falling at the end of November, the holiday season is fast approaching.

Since its inception, Giving Tuesday has grown into a significant annual event. The movement has attracted nonprofits, businesses, and individuals to come together in promoting philanthropy and acts of kindness. What activities are involved? People are encouraged to donate to charities, volunteer their time, or perform other acts of generosity. There are organizations that take part in Giving Tuesday by spearheading initiatives and campaigns to raise funds that support various causes.

Ways to Show Generosity to Others

Generosity takes many forms, and Giving Tuesday emphasizes this to encourage everyone to find ways that align with their resources, skills, and passions. In both big and small ways, one can express generosity to others in order to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others. Below are a few ways:

  • Financial Donation: Giving donations to charities, nonprofits, or individuals in need is a direct way to support important causes.
  • Volunteering: Offering your time and skills is another way to give back to the community. This includes volunteering at a local shelter, school, or community center.
  • Donation of Goods: One can provide clothing, food, or other essential items to those who are less fortunate.
  • Skills Training and Sharing: Finally, imparting your expertise with others, whether through education, coaching, or offering professional advice, can be a great way to give back to the needy.

Why Do Nonprofits Participate in This Global Day of Giving?

Non-government Organizations (NGOs) participate in Giving Tuesday because it offers a strategic opportunity to raise funds, increase awareness, engage supporters, and collaborate with others in the philanthropic community. As a global movement, such initiative champions the advocacy of making a positive impact on others’ lives.

Taking part in Giving Tuesday can help NGOs to:

  • Raise funds. As a designated day for donor outreach, Giving Tuesday provides an opportunity for NGOs to engage with donors and raise funds for their charitable activities.
  • Spread awareness. With this campaign, NGOs can raise awareness about their advocacies. And given the global reach of this movement, the organizations can reach a broader audience to which they can spread and communicate their message.
  • Engage with the community. Giving Tuesday encourages individuals and communities to take part in philanthropic activities. NGOs can use this day to foster a sense of community and shared purpose among other volunteers and supporters.
  • Maximize digital engagement. With the #GivingTuesday campaign, NGOs can tap into the initiative’s strong online presence. This makes digital platforms the ideal place for them to connect with potential donors and supporters.
