Are you surprised about the Black Sunday craze that seems to have hit the UK this year? The concept has come from the US where the day after Thanksgiving shops open their doors with huge discounts to entice in Christmas shoppers. Over the past few years, the UK seems to have been adopting this campaign with reports this year of people being injured and even arrested as they fought for bargain items across the country.
Today at WellFound we would like to offer you another date to add to your calendar- #GivingTuesday, December 2nd 2014.
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving. The idea also started in the US as an antidote to the madness of the shopping season. The concept is that we celebrate the season of giving, instead of just spending! It unites thousands of people across the World as they help the causes they care about. WellFound along with hundreds of other UK charities are partnering with #GivingTuesday to put a huge, global spotlight on giving.
If you would like to get involved, why not make a donation to WellFound today and share with your friends and family on Facebook and Twitter, using the hashtag #GivingTuesday. Just a small amount will help our work out in rural West Africa as we save lives by providing clean water and sanitation, and you will become part of a global movement!
