Today, November 29th is #givingtuesday, please think about people with Huntington in Latin América when giving your donations! Remember, GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of radical generosity around the world. Millions of people come together to celebrate generosity, share kindness, and drive record-breaking giving again as we did in 2021. The GivingTuesday Data Commons estimates that 35 million adults participated in many ways on GivingTuesday 2021 only in the U.S., a 6% increase over 2020. Giving in the United States alone totaled $2.7 billion representing a 9% increase compared to GivingTuesday 2020, and a 37% increase since 2019. With unprecedented levels of giving in 2020, these totals represent a significant continued trend of increased generosity.
GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
Here is this year message from our president Ignacio Muñoz-Sanjuan. Thanks for watching, thanks for giving!
