Donate to youth projects on Give for Youth on #Giving Tuesday and we’ll match your donation 1:1 – up to $100,000 worth of matched donations
We’ve all seen the pictures and TV footage over the past few days – hordes of holiday shoppers running into stores, racing to fill their carts with toys and electronics and jockeying to get the best deals. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are a big deal here in the U.S.
Now imagine this: hordes of people rushing to their favorite charities to volunteer their time and money. People competing for the biggest and best “give.” Families gathering to create new traditions around helping others during the holidays.
That’s the idea behind #GivingTuesday – it’s a national movement to shift the focus of the holidays from buying and getting more “stuff” to giving back. Microsoft is a founding partner of this new day of giving, and today only, we’ll match any donation 1:1 on Give for Youth, a micro-giving site that makes it to fund and follow the dreams of young people around the world, up to a total of $100,000.
Here are three simple ways you can participate in #GivingTuesday:
This holiday season, Microsoft wants to help you give as good as you get. We hope you’ll join us in giving back on #GivingTuesday.
