#GivingTuesday: A national day of giving back during the holidays
December 3, 2013
#GivingTuesday is a national movement around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping. Whether you’ve already finished all of your holiday shopping or are working on your list, we hope you take a moment this holiday season to include the patients at Dayton Children's as part of your holiday giving.

What is #GivingTuesday?
On Tuesday, November 27, 2012, the collective power of charities, families, businesses and individuals transformed how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. The first #GivingTuesday created a national movement around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping.
#GivingTuesday is not a new giving platform, but a call to action. The goal is to help #GivingTuesday become a major part of the holiday season, putting giving upfront in November rather than an afterthought in December or the New Year.
A respected “Team of Influencers” helped conceive and shape the concept for #GivingTuesday. For the full list or more information please visit www.givingtuesday.org .
