#GivingTuesday is more than hashtag activism but a way to look beyond ourselves in global partnership with a day reserved for giving at the heart of the holiday season.
#GivingTuesday started in 2012 as a way to combat commercialism within the Black Friday/Cyber Monday window between the holidays by the United Nations Foundation and the 92nd Street Y in NYC. Just last year alone over 45m was raised for many deserving causes.
#GivingTuesday is always the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving here in the United States. It is a day of waiting opportunity to make a donation or give of yourself within your rowing community and beyond. Take advantage of some good karma and celebrate the importance of giving back!
*December is Universal Human Rights Month
