5 Simple Ways to Help a Child in Need on #GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that takes place each year. Following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday offers us a chance to kick off the charitable season and get in the spirit of generosity. This year, Giving Tuesday will fall on Tuesday, December 3, 2019.

Fueled by the power of social media and collaboration, we’re asking you to get involved this December and tell your online communities how you are giving back to kids. By choosing to support Save the Children on Giving Tuesday, you can help us reach even more girls and boys in the United States and all around the world. How will you give back?

1. Make a Donation

It’s never too late to help children around the world to survive and thrive, and on Giving Tuesday you can make the strongest impact. For every donation we receive, a generous donor will match your gift, up to $100,000, through December 4th! Want to do even more? The unwavering support of our monthly donors enables us be there for children every day and in times of crisis.

When you fundraise on behalf of Save the Children, you help us reach children with lifesaving aid and life-changing programs. For Giving Tuesday, Facebook will match eligible donations made through Facebook Fundraisers up to $7 million.

3. Give A Meaningful Gift That Gives Back

Imagine if you had the opportunity to send a girl to school, provide an essentials kit to a refugee child, or help a family in need with life-saving livestock? Our gift catalog contains gifts at all price ranges, fit for everyone on your holiday list.

4. Sponsor A Child

Every child deserves a strong start — the best chance for a successful future. But too many children right here in the U.S. and around the world aren’t getting the opportunity to reach their full potential. You can help change that. When you sponsor a child, you give the gift of a brighter future. Your sponsorship helps provide children with the necessities for a healthy and successful start to their life — nutrition, early childhood and adolescent development, education and school health.
