#GivingTuesday is just around the corner and individuals, corporates and NGOs globally are getting set with their plans to celebrate this special day. On this day the whole world will be united in one common thought – to rejoice in generosity and the joy of giving. #GivingTuesday is celebrated on the Tuesday following the American holiday Thanksgiving.
#GivingTuesday was launched in 2012 and has been picked up enthusiastically worldwide. A social media movement, #GivingTuesday encourages people to donate in any form they wish. Whether the expression takes the form of a thought shared online, or a donation made to someone in need, #GivingTuesday celebrates the essence of the holiday season by remembering the needs of the less fortunate.
To celebrate this day corporates and charities work closely together to provide a platform for people to give generously to those in need. In fact Cisco, whose preferred partner in India is Akshaya Patra, plans to launch an interesting campaign with us to mark this day.
In addition to this Hyatt Community Grants, the philanthropic programme of Hyatt Hotels has also planned to partner with Akshaya Patra in celebration of #GivingTuesday 2014!
We can’t wait to be a part of this wonderful occasion when the whole world will come together to spread happiness through giving. In the meantime keep check in with our Facebook, Twitter and Google+ pages on 2nd December to find out more about our #GivingTuesday campaign!
