Celebrate #GivingTuesday - December 3, 2013

After a weekend of giving thanks, finding the best deals around, and supporting local small businesses on Small Business Saturday, it’s time to give back.

 

#GivingTuesday is a national day of giving, celebrating and encouraging charitable activities that support non-profit organizations nationally.

 

Last year, more than 50 million people worldwide spread the word about #GivingTuesday, marking a milestone trend on Twitter. Last year, online donations jumped by more than 50% on #GivingTuesday.

 

There’s no shortage of local organizations working every day to improve our community – why not show your support with a #GivingTuesday donation?

 

If you’re looking for inspiration, the Willamette Week Give Guide is a great reference, highlighting some of our community’s top mission-driven non-profits.
