What is GivingTuesday?
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give.
Giving Tuesday in South Africa
Celebrated on the Tuesday following the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday & Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday & end-of-year giving.
On Dec 3, 2019, join the #GivingTuesdaySA movement and give back.
Give back on GivingTuesday: Create quality early-learning opportunities for children plus sustainable jobs for women.
GROW Educare Centres (a non-profit organisation) is helping women across South Africa to establish excellent, high-quality Early Childhood Development (ECD) centres in disadvantaged communities that are also financially sustainable businesses. With 44 centres across the country in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and Pietermaritzburg, we need your support to impact and equip more teachers and children.
