Giving Tuesday, or #GivingTuesday as it’s often known, is a global movement that has gained momentum in recent years as a dedicated day for charitable giving. It follows the whirlwind of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which are traditionally associated with shopping and consumerism.
The idea is simple but powerful: to set aside a day for individuals, organizations, and communities to come together and give back. Let’s talk about how and why you’re invited to partner with the life-changing work the USANA Foundation is doing! And don’t forget that you can support the USANA Foundation through our Holiday Matching Grant Program, becoming a monthly donor, sponsoring a Garden Tower community, or giving through your monthly USANA auto order.
A Brief History of Giving Tuesday
The concept of Giving Tuesday was born in 2012, created by the team at the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact at the 92nd Street Y, a cultural center in New York City.
It was introduced as a response to the consumer-driven days following Thanksgiving, aiming to celebrate and encourage generosity and philanthropy during the holiday season. Since its inception, Giving Tuesday has grown into a global phenomenon, observed by millions of people worldwide who unite to support a diverse array of charitable causes.
Here’s why the USANA Foundation stands apart!
