Last year, the #GivingTuesday movement raised $2.7 billion for nonprofit organizations in the US. It also inspired millions of people to volunteer. We love the spirit of #GivingTuesday, so we created our own #GivingTuesdayNow weekly challenges to keep that spirit alive all year.
These challenges give you simple ways to give back to your community. They also can fit into everyone’s schedule. Keep reading to learn more about the movement and where to find the weekly challenges.
Even though Utah is ranked the most charitable state in the nation, we know not everyone has time in their busy schedules to volunteer at the local food bank or enough money to make large donations. The #GivingTuesdayNow weekly challenges break down giving and volunteering into bite-sized service and donation opportunities so that everyone can participate.
For example, the challenge we posted on August 9 was to refer a friend to our services. It could include someone who needs help with finances, needs food assistance, or is ready to buy a home but doesn’t know where to start. Other upcoming challenges might involve donating a specific food item, like cereal, or giving $5 to a specific program.
Once you’ve completed a challenge, we encourage you to tag us in a post on your social media platform of choice—with our weekly graphic and #GivingTuesdayNow—so we can thank you for participating. You also can comment on our social media pages and tell us how you completed the activity. And please, make sure to share the challenge with your friends and family. We’d also love to see photos of people completing the weekly activities.
