Never heard of it?
Giving Tuesday is a fairly new phenomenon in the UK, since 2014. It is observed as the day after Cyber Monday – where people who saved in the sales will choose to donate some of the money they saved to supporting a good cause.
#GivingTuesday is a huge day for charities in the UK and in 70 other countries around the globe!
Don’t just want to give money?
Giving Tuesday isn’t just about giving things with monetary value. It is a reminder to just be kind to each other, where even the simplest gesture for a charity or good social cause can make the world of difference.
If you believe in a charity or social cause – rave about it! Let people know you admire their work!
The #GivingTuesday organisation can give you a big bunch of ideas of how to get involved:
Save the Children – our chosen charity
On December 15th Sheridan Lifts are holding an office Christmas Jumper Day where each staff member donates a suggested donation of £2 to showcase their most weird and wonderful Christmas attire! We also have pay-to-play office games like Christmas sweepstakes.
Our chosen charity is Save the Children. See this blog for more information. The philanthropic work of Save the Children has saved innumerable lives across the world since 1932 and touched our hearts here at Sheridan Lifts. If you would like to give with us here’s how: Text TEAM19790 to 70050 to donate £2 with Sheridan Lifts and help us raise money for Save the Children!
Even though our Christmas Jumper Day is 15th December – you can give this giving Tuesday or anytime!
Go on and spread the love, be kind and don’t forget to have fun!
