Join the Generosity Movement
GivingTuesday is November 30
GivingTuesday is I Live Here I Give Here’s program to promote acts of generosity and giving in Central Texas.
GivingTuesday takes place every year the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and commercial shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday. A worldwide day of giving and unity, it aims to center public attention on the vital role of generosity in our communities.
I Live Here I Give Here officially joined the global GivingTuesday movement in 2017 as the Central Texas GivingTuesday Community Leader. And, of course, here in Austin, we have our own unique way of celebrating GivingTuesday — taking action for good! This year, we’ve teamed up with Visible, a wireless service committed to connection, accessibility, and inclusivity. Through the Visible Connect Social Good initiative, the company supports Civic Action: engaging with community minded individuals to lead, give back, and inspire change.
We invite you to join us November 1-30 and participate in the ACTS OF GENEROSITY Social Media Challenge by sharing how you give using the hashtags #ILiveHereIGiveHere and #GivingTuesday. Here are 30 acts in 30 days to get you started taking acts of generosity! Tag friends, family, and co-workers to join the generosity movement with you. Your post may be shared on our accounts! Courtesy of Visible, one Instagram follower will be selected to review $100 to give to their favorite nonprofit on AmplifyATX.org.
An act for generosity can be anything from hosting a food or clothing drive, volunteering with co-workers or family, fostering a pet, visiting a local art museum or spreading the word about giving on social media.
Here are a few ideas to get you started.
