Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we have #GivingTuesday on the 2nd December.

A global day of giving, #GivingTuesday is an opportunity to come together to show the world why it’s good to give. Whether it’s making a donation, volunteering your time or just spreading the word at the start of the Christmas shopping season, #GivingTuesday is a call to action for everyone who wants to give something back.

This year the campaign is being launched in the UK by the Charities Aid Foundation with support from Blackbaud. We are delighted to be one of the partners of #GivingTuesday in the UK.


The simple idea behind #GivingTuesday is to encourage people, charities and businesses to donate time, money or their voice to help a good cause.

A number of events will be taking place across the country on the 2nd December to mark #GivingTuesday. One event taking place in London is a free breakfast morning at The Canvas Cafe, which was recently featured in the Good News Shared ‘Food for Thought’ series. Organised by World Cancer Research Fund UK, the #GivingTuesday free breakfast morning event at The Canvas Cafe will raise awareness and funds for cancer prevention research in the UK and beyond. As well as enjoying a free breakfast of fruit, granola and yogurt, you will be able to chat to health information experts about how you can reduce your risk of cancer and start making positive lifestyle changes.
