Giving Tuesday 2023
Giving Tuesday is a global movement and annual event that was created in response to the consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It’s a day dedicated to charitable giving and community involvement. Giving Tuesday takes place on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, following the well-known shopping frenzies that kick off the holiday season.
The concept of Giving Tuesday was introduced by the 92nd Street Y, a cultural and community center in New York City, in collaboration with the United Nations Foundation in 2012. The inaugural Giving Tuesday took place on November 27, 2012. The idea was to designate a day that encourages people to shift their focus from holiday shopping to acts of kindness, generosity, and supporting nonprofit organizations.
The timing of Giving Tuesday is significant, as it leverages the holiday spirit and the end-of-year charitable giving season, making it an ideal opportunity for individuals and organizations to give back to their communities and causes they care about.
This GivingTuesday the Ogden Valley Adaptive community is participating! We have identified people that would benefit from more adaptive opportunities in our community and we are raising funds to be able to provide those programs. With your help we will be able to create and run much needed adaptive programs.
