#GivingTuesdayNow - 2 weeks from today

Hello everyone

It’s two weeks until #GivingTuesdayNow, 5 days until the start of the 2.6 Challenge and 2 days until The Big Night In appeal! Busy (and fun!) days ahead so we’ve got some resources that will help with your planning for 5th May.

#GivingTuesdayNow Resources

We’ve got some really useful resources for you for #GivingTuesdayNow.

We have The Complete Toolkit with lots of ideas for external communications, social media and a press release template.

For those who are planning fundraising as part of #GivingTuesdayNow, we’ve got some great toolkits to help you with ideas. One for charities with ideas of how to engage your supporters and one for individuals and families that you can share to help your supporters come up with something that suits them.

Don’t forget, if you are already getting involved with the 2.6 Challenge, you can use GivingTuesdayNow as a day to say thank you to all those who raised money for you. And if you are a business, it's a great opportunity to show how your CSR is responding to the crisis.


3 quick and easy ways to get involved in #GivingTuesdayNow

We know everyone is busy at the minute so have four quick and easy ways to get involved in #GivingTuesdayNow

  • Share a message of thanks for all the generous people at this time, from essential workers, charities, volunteers and neighbours who are supporting us through this challenging time
  • Choose a fundraising idea from our toolkits, such as getting one of your staff or board members to teach a masterclass online!
  • Share a heart in your front window as a sign to all those essential workers that they are appreciated
  • Share some of your past (and current) successes on social media on the day – thank your supporters for helping you achieve them
