BACKGROUND: Giving Tuesday was started by the 92nd Street Y in 2012.  #GivingTuesday™ is a campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season.  It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support non-profit organizations.  In the same way that retail stores take part in Black Friday, the movement wants the giving community to come together for #GivingTuesday.  Partners create and commit to a project for/on #GivingTuesday and then help spread the word to their networks.  Over 2,500 charities, volunteer organizations, corporations and foundations came together in all 50 U.S. states with one common purpose ‐‐ to help others and incentivize ways to give more, give smarter, and celebrate the great American spirit of contribution.

The remarkable results showed a marked increase in charitable giving and excitement:
