#GivingTuesday is I Live Here I Give Here’s program to promote generosity, doing good and monthly giving in Austin. Austin has been named one of the most economically segregated cities in the country while also being named one of America’s strongest economies. Austin is currently ranked the 33rd most generous city in the US, compared to our neighbors Dallas at number 4, Houston at number 5, and San Antonio at number 25. We know we can do better! Let’s show the world how generous our community can be this #GivingTuesday.
#GivingTuesday takes place every year the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the giving season. I Live Here I Give Here officially joined the global #GivingTuesday movement in 2018, as the Central Texas #GivingTuesday Community Leader.
