Giving Back After Thanksgiving

New campaign focuses on charitable giving
Tue, 11/20/2012

We have an entire day to give thanks over a turkey feast. Then there’s Black Friday, a bargain hunter’s dream. And Cyber Monday, for those of us who prefer to take advantage of markdowns online. 

Now there’s a new effort underway to dub the Tuesday after Thanksgiving “Giving Tuesday” - a day for giving back.

Backed by New York’s 92nd Street Y, the United Nations Foundation, Skype, JCPenney and others, the #GivingTuesday campaign aims to create a national day of giving at the start of the holiday season as well as to encourage citizens to support nonprofit organizations and honor their work. 

The International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) invites you to celebrate Giving Tuesday by helping us achieve 10,000 views of our video, “Voices from Ethiopia." Thanks to those of you who have already checked out the video. Now, help us get even more views by posting the video to your Facebook site, tweeting it or emailing it to others - and tell your friends to do the same!
