What is #GivingTuesday?
It’s a simple idea – a global day dedicated to giving back.
On #GivingTuesday (2nd December 2014) individuals, charities, families, businesses and community centres in Australia and around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give back to the causes they care most about.
As an official #GivingTuesday partner, Everyday Hero is excited to offer you the opportunity for your staff and supporters to get involved in the lead up to and on the day.

How can our charity get involved?
As part of your Everyday Hero membership, your charity will be included as a potential beneficiary for your donors and supporters on the #GivingTuesday fundraising website.
All you need to do is engage with your supporters and donors, and ask them to choose a way to give to your cause this #GivingTuesday.
There are three ways your supporters can get involved.
Giving their effort: Raising money for you by creating a supporter page
Your supporters can give their effort by creating a supporter page to raise money for you. Just ask them to create a page and choose to support you at the #GivingTuesday fundraising website.
Once they’ve created their page, they can post updates and share them straight out to their social networks to raise awareness of what they are doing for your charity as part of #GivingTuesday.
Giving their money: Generously donating to you
Your supporters can donate to you in the lead up to or on #GivingTuesday using the ‘Donate Now’ button on the #GivingTuesday fundraising website.
Giving their voice: Telling their friends about your cause and encouraging them to give
By spreading the word about #GivingTuesday, your supporters can raise awareness of the ways their friends and family can also give back, in turn helping charities like yours. So ask them to spread the word about what you’re doing!
