Exciting news! We’re partnering and reuniting with several game-changing organizations like the U.N. Foundation to launch what we plan to be our biggest #GivingTuesday, ever! For those new to the date, it’s the global day of giving back. While Black Friday and Cyber Monday are about giving to friends and family, #GivingTuesday is about sharing with and helping those you perhaps don’t know, too—and it allows you to be part of a larger community.
The Plan: We’re offering participating nonprofit and social-change campaigns a special #GivingTuesday amplification package, to help raise awareness and maximize fundraising efforts. Campaigns that launch by December 2, 2014 will receive our Amplification Guide, marketing and ad retargeting credits, reduced fees, free press release distribution, and many more helpful tools. Last year more than 250 campaigns from 43 countries participated, helping to raise more than $2.6 million to help change the world!
Who’s Invited: We encourage everyone to participate! One of the most exciting things about Indiegogo is that everyone can come to raise money—and find and fund what matters to them. That especially resonates with #GivingTuesday, because when you give everyone a say in how to spend to help others, the value is beyond dollars; you’re giving people the ability to make an impact on someone else’s life.
Let’s Change the World: Want to know how? Be part of #GivingTuesday by launching a campaign to create social change by December 2, 2014.
