Get Ready. It's #GivingTuesday!

December 03, 2013 | Michelle Liew

Join with the Cancer Research Institute and nonprofits from around the world to make today a day of giving back. #GivingTuesday is a new tradition helping people reach out to take care of others during this season of joy. There are many ways to get involved in #GivingTuesday, and everyone can participate.

  1. Spread the word. #GivingTuesday is still a growing tradition, so make sure everyone knows about it. Share with people on social media, and let those around you know that the Tuesday following Thanksgiving is turning into a day to give back.
  1. Donate. The Cancer Research Institute runs on donations from remarkable people who understand the importance of cancer immunotherapy. Whether you donate $10 or $10,000, your donation is saving lives.

This year, you can double your donation. Because of the generosity of an outstanding donor and friend, donations made today to the Cancer Research Institute are being matched dollar for dollar.

  1. Volunteer. Giving money isn’t the only way to give back. Look for ways to volunteer your time and expertise to support the organizations you love.
  1. Share your experience. Tell your story to the HuffingtonPost by sending a 500 to 850 word post to Share with your local news outlets about what you did, what organizations you donated to and why you support this new tradition. Use the #GivingTuesday hashtag on social media to let people know the impact a donation can have. Post your story on our Facebook wall so we know what our supporters are doing today.

Join in with the thousands upon thousands of people across the globe who are getting into the spirit of giving. Together we are giving back to find ways to better treat and cure cancer. Please double your donation today and give so others can live.

I'm bummed that I missed my chance to blog about #GivingTuesday this year, but it surely sounds like a worthwhile initiative. By the way, I was wondering if you could share some more background information on #GivingTuesday? Thanks!
