Giving Tuesday is a global day on November 28th in which the power of individuals, communities, and organizations join together to encourage philanthropy worldwide. The day is set annually on the Tuesday after Black Friday and Cyber Monday in order to shift the mindsets of holiday shopping to give and inspire others in improving their local communities. This non-profit charity, based in Jacksonville provides scholarships, educational programs, and additional support and opportunities to young women in the Florida area. The charity has set their 2017 goal to fund scholarships and services to the young women that have entered the program this past Fall.
#GivingTuesday is combined power from others to give back and help create a better world. Just recently, Foundation for Fortitude joined the movement in hopes of reaching the fundraising goal as well as fund other critical needs for the women in the program.
Over $177 million was raised just online to benefit a range of organizations. This year, #GivingTuesday will embark on their sixth year of impact.
