Today’s the day to do good stuff for charity!
Every year businesses and charities support the #givingtuesday campaign and it’s a day dedicated to doing good stuff for charity. Last year #givingtuesday broke a Guinness World Record for the most online donations in 24 hours, as people gave away $48 million to good causes globally. The UK was the second biggest contributor to this amount.
So, how can you get involved? A simple way to make a difference on #givingtuesday is to make a donation to MS-UK. We’re here to support anyone affected by multiple sclerosis, and your donation helps us ensure nobody faces this condition alone.
Another way to do good stuff is to sign up as a volunteer. We have lots of easy, fun ways to get involved with our work throughout the year, whether it’s supporting a bucket collection or cheering on runners at a national event. Just email me to find out more about volunteering!
Of course we couldn’t let today go by without doing good stuff ourselves, so we’re off to our local Waitrose store to help shoppers pack their bags. Keep an eye on our Twitter feed for photos!
Whatever you do today to celebrate #givingtuesday, I hope you have a wonderful day and enjoy being part of this global movement!
