What is #GivingTuesday?


Giving Tuesday was created when two organizations, the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation came together in 2012, about a month before that year’s Thanksgiving.

Their intention was to set aside a day that was all about celebrating the generosity of giving, a great American tradition.

As a global movement to create an international day of giving at the beginning of the Christmas and Holiday Season, #GivingTuesday unites countries around the world by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.

While this is only the seventh annual Giving Tuesday, the movement continues to show exponential growth year over year. In 2017, Giving Tuesday raised more than 300 million dollars in donations – a 69% increase from the previous year.

What started as a day in the US, has quickly grown into a worldwide celebration of generosity and our shared capacity to give. There are currently over 50 countries participating, including South Africa.

Make a Donation

Use #GivingTuesdaySA as the day you give financially to a cause that is meaningful to you. Share with your friends, family, and networks about where you gave and why. We all share a lot of our lives these days, so why not apply the same share tactics to your giving philosophy. Highlight the causes that mean something to you. Give them appreciation and celebrate them.

Give your Time or Skills

All non-profits can use help, it is often a matter of matching what you can provide with what non-profits need. Think thoughtfully about what you have to give time wise and try your best to match it.

About LFCT

CHILDHOOD CANCER and CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS Little Fighters Cancer Trust is a non-profit Childhood Cancer support organisation that offers support and aid to Children with Cancer and their families. When a child is diagnosed with cancer it affects the whole family. One of the parents, usually the mother, must give up their job to care for the child and this creates financial problems for the family. In South Africa especially the majority of these families are not well-to-do; many of them are rural. A diagnosis of cancer can wipe out any family’s finances, let alone a poor family. The costs of special medications, special diets, hospital stays, transport to and from the hospital or clinic and accommodation and food costs for the mother who spends most of the time at her child’s bedside are astronomical. These are the people and problems that fall through the cracks, and these are the people that Little Fighters Cancer Trust has pledged to help in any way possible. LFCT takes a holistic approach to assisting the Children with Cancer and their Families, with the main aim to be the preservation of individual dignity and pride. Little Fighters Cancer Trust also focuses on promotion and advocacy of National Childhood Cancer Awareness in an effort to increase awareness of Early Warning Signs of Childhood Cancer. This would result in earlier diagnosis, giving the Child with Cancer more of a chance at Treatment and Survival. See "About" for more Background info
