Support COVID-19 Relief on #GivingTuesdayNow
How Can You Help?
The global threat of COVID-19 has affected nearly every person on the planet, but it also presents us with an opportunity to unite as a global community. Now, more than ever, is the time to come together to support communities and nonprofits in our hometowns and beyond.
Serving as an emergency response to COVID-19 needs, #GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving that will take place on May 5, 2020, in addition to the regularly-scheduled Dec. 1, 2020 #GivingTuesday. Giving Tuesday began in 2011 as an international day of charitable giving marking the beginning of the Christmas and holiday season. Now, it’s time to extend this charitable giving to a time when many need it most.
