Launched by GivingTuesday as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19, #GivingTuesdayNow (May 5, 2020), brought millions of people together to express their generosity through acts of kindness, donations of goods, time and money, notes of compassion, advocacy for causes, and care for family and friends. People from over 145 countries came together to present a united front of hope, generosity and kindness in a time when many are facing challenges due to the pandemic.
We can still show social connection and come together on behalf of our communities even while practicing physical distancing.
- Support healthcare workers by donating supplies, advocating for them, and staying home.
- Give to the organizations that you love most – no amount is too little and nonprofits need our support.
- Help out small businesses by buying gift cards or writing an online review.
- Combat loneliness by reaching out to a neighbor, relative, seniors or veterans.
