This year marks the launch of #GivingTuesday, an exciting campaign to create a national day of giving. With Black Friday and Cyber Monday marking the beginning of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday aims to serve as the start of the giving season. The United Nations Foundation and 800 partners, including nonprofits and corporations, are coming together to spread the word about #GivingTuesday, and to encourage charitable giving to those in need.
The We Can Be Heroes campaign was inspired by #GivingTuesday and it’s celebration of giving, and as a result we’re asking our We Can Be Heroes campaign supporters to be a part of #GivingTuesday.
Here are three ways you can get involved and make a difference today:
- Raise awareness of the hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa by sharing the We Can Be Heroes giving campaign with friends and family on Twitter and Facebook
- Thank the hero in your life by donating to DC Entertainment’s We Can Be Heroes giving campaign this holiday, and send them a unique e-card telling them how much they’ve made a difference to you in your life.
- Encourage loved ones to give back this #GivingTuesday by donating to the We Can Be Heroes giving campaign or a cause that they care about.
