International (MNN) — On the heels of Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday serves as a global reminder that it’s better to give than to receive.
#GivingTuesday allows non-profit ministries to spread awareness about their work and raise financial support to keep that work going.
Any charities can participate; they just designate a hashtag to single out their efforts (#GivingBundlesDay or #GiveJESUS, for example) and include it in all of their social media posts, along with a link to their donate page.
Since its creation in 2012, #GivingTuesday has garnered an estimated 470% increase in online donations. Here’s a look at the growth of #GivingTuesday around the world.
Today, as you consider a plethora of different causes to support, would you check out the ones that further God’s Kingdom?
We’re spotlighting a few here to get you started:
Last year on Giving Tuesday, many friends united together and sent “JESUS” to two people groups in India.
A Bundle of Love package, provided by AMG International, contains more than shoes, pants, and blankets. A Bundle of Love is stuffed full of joy and hope. Is there any better Christmas gift that you could give?
It takes only $20 to make one Bundle of Love possible and to bring tremendous joy and encouragement to someone in need.
Chris Tomlin’s new Christmas CD, Adore, features beautiful, uplifting songs that focus on the life-changing Reason for the season.
