What is Giving Tuesday? Think of it as a globally recognized day such as Black Friday or Cyber Monday! This day of giving is fueled by the power of social media, and now in it’s 4th year, is held annually the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. #GivingTuesday was created by 92nd Street Y, a cultural center in New York City whose mission is to celebrate and encourage giving by connecting diverse groups, communities, and organizations around the world.
According to the non-profit’s website, givingtuesday.org, #GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners— nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals—to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness.
We invite you to join us in the spirit of giving back during the month of December. If you see the Grove Dental Jeep around town, take a “selfie” with our jeep and post it on social media with #GroveDental and we’ll make a donation to your favorite charity!
