This year, Rotary will kick-off the holiday season by joining the social media world on December 2nd for #GivingTuesday.  Started in 2012, #GivingTuesday is a movement to go online for a classic holiday tradition - giving to those in need.  Following the Thanksgiving weekend into Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday had 2.5 million views online last year.
For a bit of friendly Rotary competition, the Foundation will send a special thank you and give national recognition to the club and district that have the most individual gifts made to The Rotary Foundation on #GivingTuesday.
Although Rotarians give to the community year round, #GivingTuesday is a great chance to reach new supporters with the momentum of social media. Lead your club or district to give on December 2nd by supporting Rotary on Facebook orTwitter.
