#GivingTuesday & Indiegogo: Keep the Giving Going


Indiegogo #GivingTuesday

Indiegogo has always been dedicated to empowering people worldwide to fund what matters to them, and that’s why we teamed up to support #GivingTuesday, an international initiative to give back after the Thanksgiving holiday rush.

This past #GivingTuesday, December 2nd, topped the charts, with hundreds of campaigns launched from 44 countries—raising a total of more than $7.5 million to make a difference for others. Whether it was teaching 100 million students how to code, reconstructing a health center for musicians with Nuçi’s Space, training 180 local healthcare providers in India with the American Heart Association, or funding world-class research with the Parkinson’s Institute and Clinical Center, our global community came together to make it happen this week.

The giving doesn’t end here though; #GivingTuesday was just the beginning. Here are six more campaigns to check out that you can still contribute to and share with your networks:

Nanning Project: The World’s Biggest Bear Rescue (San Francisco, CA)

Ali Forney Center: Homeless LGBT Youth (New York, NY)

Turn Teens into Global Citizens (New York, NY)

Embrace – A Gorgeous Watch Designed to Save Lives (Cambridge, MA)

Grow, Grow Gratefulness (Ithaca, NY)

Desolenator: Transforming Sunshine into Water (London, UK)

Of course, we at Indiegogo couldn’t have helped such a wonderful initiative come to life alone. We were thrilled to work with incredible partners, including Green Inbox, AdRoll, LinkedIn, 92Y, and many others, all of whom provided their services to #GivingTuesday campaigners.
