5 Ways to Do Giving Tuesday This Year & Help a Child in Need

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that takes place each year. This year, #GivingTuesday will take place on November 28, 2023 as a global day of unity to give back and support children and families in need. 

Fueled by the power of social media and collaboration, we’re asking you to get involved this November 28, the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, and tell your online communities how you are giving back to help children in the U.S. and around the world. By choosing to support Save the Children on #GivingTuesday, you can help us reach vulnerable children in the U.S. and around the world, including those impacted by disease, poverty and conflict.

Here are 5 simple things you can do to participate and give back on Giving Tuesday this year.

1. Make a Donation on Giving Tuesday

Children around the world are  facing a perfect storm of crises: conflict, climate change and economic instability. Donating on Giving Tuesday can help protect a generation of children in need.

Together, we can create a world where children can achieve their dreams, grow their brilliant minds and live up to their full potential. Together we have the power to transform lives and help children fight for their childhoods.

Your Giving Tuesday support will help keep children alive, safe and protected.  On Giving Tuesday, please support our vital work so that we can help those children who need us the most.
