Every year, people all over the world come together for Giving Tuesday to kick off the holiday giving season, the benevolent hangover of the frenzy that is Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Generosity replaces consumerism as charitable giving and volunteerism are celebrated.
This year, what we want to see most is more action. Our world needs more good, necessary, BEAUTIFUL trouble. So, we’re inviting everyone we know to be a part of a consistent and united movement for change in 2019 — whatever the issues you’re concerned with is, stand up. Speak up. Act up. That’s how change happens.
This #GivingTuesday, don’t just give — give a damn. Take the Troublemaker’s Pledge with us and do 12 things to help build the world. By taking action, you can also ignite that powerful feeling of hope among other people.
Between things like rising far-right hate group activity, persistent inequalities of all kinds, and the alarm bells sounded by the world’s leading scientists at the United Nations that we have just over a decade left to save the climate, hope hasn’t been as abundant as it’s been in the past.
We won’t plan on letting the haters, or apathy, or climate despair win. That’s where you come in.
This #GivingTuesday, don’t just put your money where your mouth is — walk the talk with us.
Take the pledge and join us throughout 2019 for some wicked tactics and opportunities for getting up to some beautiful trouble.
