Giving Tuesday is a global movement that fosters giving back to local communities through gifts of time, donations, goods, or awareness. After you’ve spent Thanksgiving with your family and shopped the Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday deals, consider giving back to your community.
The movement was created in 2012 with a simple goal: encourage people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a global event that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity, according to GivingTuesday.org.
The best way to get involved is through your community’s non-profit organizations. Visit the Wellness Works Community Events Calendar to find volunteer opportunities in Southeast Michigan. GivingTuesday.org also created a directory to help you find organizations and events.
Giving back is an excellent way for businesses to contribute to a thriving Detroit region, when organizations engage with their communities, everyone wins.
