What is Giving Tuesday and How Can Athletes Participate?

The days following Thanksgiving are the highest grossing days for retail of the year. Everyone is trying to get the best deal on gifts for the holidays. There is Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday and now Giving Tuesday – a day set aside for helping your favorite charity.
Giving Tuesday was created to promote charitable giving in the United States and is celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Here is how you, as an athlete, can participate:

  • Donate
    Whether you donate $10 or $1000, your donation will go to help your favorite organization do good things in the world.
  • Buy all of your holiday purchases using AmazonSmile:
    AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. Click here for more information about AmazonSmile.
  • Share on social media:
    Check out your favorite charity’s Twitter, Instagram and Facebook pages and share their Giving Tuesday posts. Is your charity not on social media? Share why you support their work in your own social media post.
  • Contact us for other ideas:
    You don’t have to donate your money to help a charity.  Call us and we can help you find a way to give back to a cause you care about.

Whatever you decide to do, know that your cause needs your support to help others and Athletes for Hope is here to help you find out the best way for you to do that.
