CAF CAMPAIGN COMMENT

campaign SPOTLIGHT: GIVING TUESDAY

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Thousands of charities, companies, individuals and community groups take part across the world and the campaign is growing every year.

Join the movement and give - whether it’s some of your time, a donation, gift, or simply a thank-you to your charity supporters for all their help over the year.

Giving Tuesday is a great way to come together with your family, your community, your company or your organisation and find a way to give back.
