This GivingTuesday, Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE) will inspire generosity by giving people the opportunity to Catch Kindness by donating to RARE’s mission to rescue neglected and abandoned animals in rural areas across Tennessee, and Spread Generosity by encouraging five friends to do the same.
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. GivingTuesday will kick off the generosity season this year by inspiring people to give back on December 1, 2020, and throughout the year.
This year, GivingTuesday is more important than ever. Not just for the money, but for opportunity to do and see good. Kindness is contagious. RARE hopes to meet their goal of $10,000 doubling what was brought in for their organization on Giving Tuesday last year.
“We can’t do what we do without our fosters, adopters, volunteers, and donors. It is a group effort and being separated from them this year in so many ways has not been easy. We are hoping Giving Tuesday can make us all feel like one big team again.” – Trisha Crowley, Founder & President of RARE
GivingTuesday was launched in 2012 as a simple idea: to create a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
People demonstrate generosity in many ways on GivingTuesday. Whether it’s helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving to causes we care about, every act of generosity counts. GivingTuesday has raised billions of dollars for critical causes around the world and gets 21 billion impressions on social media from people and organizations speaking up for the causes that matter to them and encouraging others to get involved in their communities.
"GivingTuesday inspires people all around the world to embrace their power to drive progress around the causes they care about, not just on one day but throughout the year." said Asha Curran, GivingTuesday’s CEO, and co-founder. "With country and community leaders, millions of organizations, and countless givers of all kinds, GivingTuesday is creating a shared space where we can see the radical implications of a more generous world."
