What is Giving Tuesday 2020 and How Can You Get Involved?

Giving Tuesday 2020 is fast approaching on December 1st, have you heard of it? Perhaps it was born as the opposite of Black Friday, a day known for sales and heavily discounts an effort to boost profits towards the end of the year. In stark contrast, Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement. It is a day where people donate time and money to help both local and global charities or non-profits.

What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday occurs on the first Tuesday in December every year. Giving Tuesday 2020 is on December 1st. It is a global movement inspiring generosity. Giving Tuesday also encourages people and organizations to help local and global causes, non-profits and charities.

According to the GivingTuesday.com, “GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.”

Please consider making a contribution for the future of The Leo House. (image of the front door of The Leo House welcoming guests).

Giving Tuesday 2020 and The Leo House

This year has been a challenge and struggle for nearly everyone on this earth. We ask our amazing community to donate to The Leo House to keep us up and running in NYC. You can also spread the word to others who may want to donate. Your help can be as simple as forwarding an email or social post to a friend about The Leo House. Your donation can be as small as a $10 donation, every little bit helps. We continue to stay strong and optimistic despite rising operational costs due to Covid-19 and restrictions on the travel industry. We hope to be your home-away-from-home in NYC for many years to come.

No matter how you participate this Giving Tuesday 2020, we wish you all good things to come this holiday season. We look forward to a fresh start in 2021.
