Launched by GivingTuesday as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19, #GivingTuesdayNow (May 5, 2020), brought millions of people together to express their generosity through acts of kindness, donations of goods, time and money, notes of compassion, advocacy for causes, and care for family and friends. People from over 145 countries came together, for one day of shared solidarity, to present a united front of hope, generosity and kindness in a time when many are facing challenges due to the pandemic. The day raised $503M in 24 hours to support front line organizations.
“This show of unity is a reminder that we are all connected and we are all generous, even when we are uncertain and afraid. We must now take the energy and inspiration of this moment forward to establish stronger habits of generosity, to think about the good we can create in the world every day.” – GivingTuesday CEO Asha Curran
